Usually we see chairs as just part of a setting, but the new exhibit at Hallockville Museum Farm, “Best Seats in the House: The Chairs of Hallockville,” puts them front and center.
These chairs, all from the Hallockville collection, present a unique social and cultural history running from 1771 through the 1900s. The opening reception was Friday at 5 p.m.
Each chair tells a story
