“JESUS in Cowboy Boots”
ENLARGEMENT OF BOOT
This is also the home to "Jesus in Cowboy Boots,"
a funereal statue with high-heeled boots visible under the robe.
This statue is actually the 20 foot tall grave marker honoring a man named Willet Babcock, who died in 1888. While impressive, it would hardly be the quirky tourist attraction that it has become were it not for the unusual footwear worn by the cross-bearing figure it depicts; instead of the bare feet or sandals one often associates with Biblical folk, this one wears cowboy boots.
