Woody Guthrie Tree.

Woody Guthrie Tree / Site Of Home

Tree carved as tribute to the folk singer on site where his childhood house once stood. Take Broadway to First Street if coming from town it's on the right, take the right onto First Street and it is a couple blocks down on the right. Look for the tree on the corner lot.
