The OTB Design Committee identified a need for additional seating throughout downtown and thought of an iconic Adirondack chair, However, the traditional design often poses a challenge to get in and out.

These chairs are an updated version. Created locally.

The committee worked with locals for design and finished product painting and even had the wood cut locally.

No two chairs are alike and there are 15 between Post Office Square and the Park on Main.

Each chair has a plaque representing the artist, individual sponsor, and the presenting sponsors.
