Come to the Library and Sit a Spell

Lincoln Rocker
If you admired Deb Porter's Lincoln Rocker on display in the Exhibit Hall at the Heath Fair you now have an opportunity to sit in it at the library.

Heath Fair Exhibit Display Board

This antique rocking chair was reupholstered by Hilma Sumner, whose exhibit of the process won a Blue Ribbon at the Fair.

Brief history of the chair style, and a description of methods used in the reconstruction.

The chair will be in the library until Columbus Day weekend – please stop by and sit a spell.
