Called a "great chair" because it has arms, this chair is painted black, an inexpensive color, and has a rush seat. Originally all the slats at the back were alike, but time and use have altered them. Many families had only one chair, which was often designated for the head of household. Other members sat on stools, the floor, or they stood. This chair was given to Memorial Hall by Esther (Harding) Dickinson.
