Visitor Tips and News About Shoe Tree
Roadside Shoe Tree
My wife and I were returning home from photographing the bald eagles nesting at Shiloh Battlefield in Savannah, Tennessee, when we passed a tree full of shoes on the west-bound side of US Hwy 72. I'd put the location somewhere near "smack-dab in the middle" of Luka, Mississippi and Tuscumbia, Alabama.[Jeremy, 04/10/2013]
This particular tree has been sporting shoes since around 2008.
