Troy Horner’s shop sits on 21st Ave. in the middle of Hillsboro Village. Operating for over 75 years, the business got its name from its original location near Peabody College. It has been in Troy’s family for 25 years. Being in Music City, Troy gets his share of boots needing repair, but that just scratches the surface of the variety of footwear that he has to be able to put just the right sole, heel, and shine on. He’s good at it, too. Can’t say the same for his housekeeping.
(In 2013, the entire block on which Peabody Shoe Repair was located was razed in order to build a multi-use development). Troy relocated his shop elsewhere.)
