Sentimental Sunday: Boy with the Boot

If your ancestors lived in or visited Sandusky, they were sure to have seen the "Boy with the Boot" statue, which has adorned the city for decades. The statue, which also has a fountain in the warm weather months, is a favorite for photo ops for local residents as well as visitors to Sandusky. The original statue is now in now in the city building, after being damaged by vandals, and then repaired. A cast of the original statue was made, and now is in Washington Park in front of the Erie County Courthouse. You can read more about the history of the "Boy with the Boot" at the Frequently Asked Questions portion of the website of the Sandusky Library. (See Question number 3.)
