Shoe Tree.

Shoe Tree

Magnificent shoe tree. Our AFS student from Hungary loves shoe trees, and how surprised we were that this wonderful tree was only 16 miles from our home. It was easy to find, going south on Hwy 14 out of Wisconsin, past Harvard and watch for Dunham Rd on your right going west. Approximately 2.5 miles on your left across the street from a large gated driveway.

Shoe trees are for everyone, and sometimes nearer than you'd think.

Shoe Tree

Before my day trip to Chicago, I read about shoe trees on your web site. Imagine my surprise when a construction detour took me right past my first one...and one that isn't yet on your maps, to "boot"! :-) This one's got a lot of shoes so far, and it's fairly convenient to Woodstock, IL, if you're already there to "see the groundhog."
