“Be on the Lookout for This Landmark”

The Big Duncan Phyfe Chair
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

As we were driving downtown today, we enjoyed the sight of this unique landmark. In the area are various landscaped esplanades, a clock tower, and this beautiful gigantic chair. The esplanade that it is on is attractive and fully landscaped . The sidewalk leading up to the chair is lined on either side with tulips, pansies, and other beautiful early spring flowers. Even if you don't want to stop and visit, this is a free and unique sight to see in this region.

Though you can see that the town is in a beautiful state of decay and decadence, it's inspiring to see this monument to the industry that once brought prosperity here.

The chair is really huge. You kinda have to see it to understand.

It's situated in a historic downtown, with early 20th century brick architecture storefronts. There's a small covered stage pavilion behind the chair, which is probably used for musical performances in summer months. A few steps away is a caboose car for more fun photo opportunities.

We really enjoyed stopping here and taking some photos.

It is a chair. Has about 4 legs. Has a place to sit. Has a back. That's it. It is a chair. Just kind of a chair.
