There’s No House In The World Like This One In Pennsylvania

Have you ever seen the shoe house in Hellam, Pennsylvania? It stands tall, shoe-like, against the horizon, beckoning one and all to enter…

The house was built by a shoe salesman (who else?) by the name of Mahlon Haines in 1948. He showed an architect one of his work boots and requested, “make me a house shaped like this.” Haines surely got what he bargained for.

Check out this video below for a behind-the-scenes look at the Shoe House. (The video features the house’s previous owner.)
