Wedding Oak

Very large old oak tree. Historical marker on site.

[David, 10/07/2020]

According to local lore, weddings were performed beneath its branches long before white settlers arrived. One of the tree's main limbs collapsed onto the adjacent road in 2017. Keep that in mind the next time you fantasize about getting married under a 1,000-year-old tree.
