Woodstock Shoe Tree

Travel with us to rural Woodstock where you’ll find a peculiar “shoe tree” on the south side of Dunham Road, just east of Menge Road, opposite a gated driveway on the north side. Sneakers, boots, even flip flops, can be seen dangling from its branches. It’s one of more than 70 such trees in the United States.

There are lots of reasons why people toss their shoes on trees, wires, fences, etc. – we suspect most of the shoes on the Marengo tree were tossed there just for fun.

Plan a trip there and tell us your Shoe Tree story!
