    It started as boots only. Maybe 30 years ago. Now all kinds of shoes and boots. It is north of Dolliver Park. I was told it was for those that didn’t have them. But I can’t say this is a fact. Just what I’ve heard.

    Down around the Lake of the Ozarks area that we used to visit, the shoe fence, and the cup tree were well known landmarks. That was before 911 address times. Those and the little wooden arrows with peoples names on them were the only road signs to be found once you got off of the main roads.

    Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison;

    The ones by Dolliver I had heard started by the land owner finding a boot along the road so he put it on the fence so the owner would find it. Then others just started showing up and today there are many that have been dropped off.

    I’m not sure. My neighbor has then on his fence posts and hanging on the side of his old silo. I just thought since he was an old horse trader it was a western theme. I personally like the rock stacking on top of each other on rock piles near the road.

    Leaving Ely Mn. after canoe trip to BWCA we would tie shoes together and throw up in a tree on south side of 169 a few miles out of town (as others did). They weren’t worth bringing home. Road repair took out the tree awhile back so we found another up the Echo Trail. 🙂
