Own a piece of Middlebury History

These chairs were used in the Middlebury Library on Library Road from c. 1935 to 1972.

The Middlebury Historical Society has 32 wood chairs dating back to the 30’s and 40’s which were used in the old library and Center School. The height of the seat is 17″ and the back 32″, the seat is 16.5″ wide. You may take one or more of these chairs in return for a donation to the society. The chairs are sturdy and in relatively good condition, but they need to be cleaned and polished. The recipient must be able to pick them up.
