I've heard about this historical site from my husband, who read about it in the paper and toured with friends. When Canadian visitors showed interest; I had my chance to see this unique house with so many artifacts with "Shoe themes." The 20+ hand carved bulldogs tell a story of Mahlon Haines' retirement star performances. Each room is located on another level with a few narrow steps to each. There were 2 bathrooms, full kitchen as well as sitting area. A very well planned house that was used for seniors and honeymooners for no charge. My greatest surprise was to learn of his philanthropistic endeavors. So glad Melanie made this her career (along with the sweet shop) and her mother-in-law gave a great tour. Be sure to see the shoe house for the dog and another smaller one for the mail.
