Barefoot Charlie, who really did go barefoot most of the time, summer and winter, ran a restaurant and tavern, Barefoot Charlie's, on Highway 45 just south of Land O'Lakes. It operated in the 1940's into the 1960's. His unique bar was contributed to the No topic [171 land o'lakes historical museum] for display about 2006. In August, 2007, Land O'Lakes inaugurated a Barefood Charlie Fest--a day of fun and music. Action, August 2007, P. 59.
