The Haines Shoe House

(YouTube link)

The Shoe House in Hellam, Pennsylvania was built in 1948 by shoe salesman Colonel Mahlon M. Haines, who styled himself as "the Shoe Wizard". Not only is the house shaped like a shoe, but each window has stained glass images of shoes! Read about the building's history at Roadside America. Link -Thanks, Greg Ross!
