But what to do with the stumps? One answer was the chainsaw sculptor. Several home owners had
the remains of a damaged/destroyed tree turned into a work of art to be enjoyed. That created a 5-mile tour in the East End Historical District. There are 21 sculptures in that area alone, in addition to several more scattered throughout the area.

And we haven't seen the Silk Stocking District yet! (Named for the wealthy class that could afford those silk stockings in the 1800’s)
While we didn’t find all the sculptures (some are in back or side yards and we were driving and not walking), we thoroughly enjoyed the sights in the area. Yup, another thing to come back for a do more in detail!
