TangleFoot Hotel

During the shipbuilding era, some of the laborers who worked on the ships needed accomodations. Liza and Wally MacIntyre provided room and board in what had been Capt. Joe's store. There was a large room upstairs that was used like a dormitory with cots for the men to sleep in. One night a prankster crept in and tied all the shoes together so in the morning when they went to put their boots on they discovered that they were in a big tangle - thus the name for their rooming house became "The Tangle Foot Hotel".
