in the Bligh Building in historic downtown Salem, we are are locally known as
High Street Shoe Repair. We are proud to say there has been a shoe
repairman on duty here since 1926. The shop has passed through
the hands of several families since first opening, we are just it's
stewards now and hope to someday pass it on to others.
|The present owner, George Miller, has
worked in the shoe repair trade since 1978, when he learned the craft
from various friends and associates in the San Francisco area. After
owning a shop in the Marina District there for about 7 years, he moved to Salem
in 1990 to enjoy a quieter life in small town America (and, oh yeh... those
pesky earthquakes were gladly left behind too...)
He and his family reside in the
local hills of the Willamette Valley, on the edge of town, where the howl of coyotes can still
be heard and blackberries still grow wild in forgotten hollers...
