History of the Big Chair

Our ladderback chair represents a piece of Bennington’s history. 

Based on an antique that had been in his family for generations, the original chair was built in 1969 by Kenneth C. Porter for William Haynes. At 2000 pounds and 19-foot 1 inch tall, it was at that time, the largest ladderback chair in the world. 

The Big Chair has been rebuilt and relocated in the several years before it landed at its new home with Tri State Area Federal Credit Union in 2018. 

Made, now, of 3000 pounds of cedar and white pine and 1000 feet of marine rope the chair continues to stand tall and proud.
