The Peterborough Chairs are Out; It Must be Spring!

The first use of the Peterborough Chair this Season

The Wave Hill Chair

The Peterborough Chair

Wave Hill has its own Adirondack chair so why shouldn't Peterborough? About ten years ago, I designed a signature Adirondack chair for the parks of Peterborough. They are custom made to our specifications by Scott Masi of York, Maine I wanted a large chair with an arm rest wide enough to hold your lunch. They are very comfortable, well built and feel like they belong in New England.

Bob Wilder, who works for the town, takes the chairs out of storage each spring and today was the day! I asked if I could take a picture of the first person I noticed using the chairs. The woman, named Nancy, happily obliged and I got a quick shot in Putnam Park. She told me she is new in town and would love to volunteer in the parks! Hopefully I will see her next Wednesday morning for our next volunteer gardening session.


  1. If you can get a volunteer out of just letting them sit in the chair, I'd have hundreds of them all over the city!
