Unusual High School Nicknames in Illinois-- Part 1: Teutopolis Wooden Shoes

In Effingham County which was established in 1839.  Many early settlers came from the City of Teutons in Germany

The city is on the National Road/U.S.-40 and has a Cincinnati connection.

They even have a German Club there.

Only I always think of wooden shoes as Dutch.
