I read about the BIG CHAIR on the internet when I was researching parks to visit. It is the WORLDS LARGEST CHAIR.
The World's Largest Chair presented to Curtis Bros. for their outstanding leadership and service to the public by the Bassett Furniture Industries. The Chair made of solid Honduras Mahogany is 19 12/2 feet tall and weighs 4600 pounds. Dedicated July 11, 1959.
Designer: Leo M. Jiranek; Builder: J.E. Bassett
This afternoon, on the way back to Lanham MD, I happened to drive by this beast. I had to pull over and do the touristy thing. Here are the results.
That chair must have been made for the Freeport Big Indian?! He's probably tired after standing all these years. Come down to Anacostia Maryland and take a load off Mr. F.B.I. !
The I wonder if the F.B.I. wears LL Beans BIG BOOTS!?
