Yale, Illinois: Mug Tree

A big sign identifies the Mug Tree, but with all of the mugs it's hard to miss. It was cut down, sort of, but now it's topped with a tree outhouse.

Mug Tree

Loved the mug tree. Drove past 12/26/2009 and it is being CUT DOWN! All the mugs are gone! It is a travesty. My family and I always liked driving by and checking out the mugs.

The Mug Tree was established 9-4-03 along Rt.49 just 1 mile south of Yale, IL. It holds hundreds of mugs which people can trade or just leave their own. There is also a mailbox with a guest book to log your visit.
