How About A Shoe In The Neighborhood?

House on Shoehouse RdThere was an old woman who lived in a shoe...

Appropriately situated on Shoehouse Rd, in Hellam, PA is this boot-shaped house. Shoe store tycoon Mahlon Haines built this unusual home in 1948 to advertise his shoes. The 3 bedroom, 2 bath house features a front door with a stained-glass portrait of the owner himself, an observation platform, and even a shoe-shaped doghouse. At one time the home was a guest house, offering weekend stays to elderly couples. Read about this strange house on 'its' website. Or, take an aerial look at Zillow.com... Here.
