...well actually there is no old lady, but it IS a shoe! I visited one of Smithers' most fantastic but little known points of interest - the "shoe house"!
I only recently found out about this house and I just had to go see it for myself! I was a little shy about going to gawk at a stranger's house, but the owner and builder, Ed, has been quoted as saying, "would I have built a house that looks like a shoe if I didn't want people to come look at it?", so I'd say that's as good of an invitation as any!
The shoe house is located on Kitseguecla Lake Rd, which is about 8 km East of Moricetown on Hwy 16. The trees have grown up around it a bit (compared to this photo that my friend took years ago - sorry, didn't have my camera for a current shot!), so I parked my car on the road and got out for a better view. The house was originally a trailer, but Ed built an addition and added the shoe-like details.
I just couldn't help but smile while checking out this unique house! Don't miss this photo op during your next trip through Smithers/Moricetown.
