Judge Elial T. Foote Historic Willow Artifact
Chautauqua County, New York, USA
As this circa 1907 postcard states: This willow tree grew from a riding whip that was thrust into the ground at the present campus of the High School building many years ago by Judge Elial T. Foote. Jamestown, New York.
A member was given this turned wooden box
made from the wood of the long gone historic willow.
