This banister-back arm chair, owned by Deerfield's Hoyt family in the Old Indian House, started life as a side chair in the late 18th century. The short arms were added sometime in the 19th century. At the same time, the legs were cut to allow for rockers to be attached. The rockers have since been removed. Made of maple and ash, the chair retains its original splint seat.
