Big Blue Adirondack Chair

Oversized but not giant. Worth the stop if you need gas and need to stretch your legs. Fun picture op right off the interstate so it doesn't take long.

Big Blue Adirondack Chair

On the side of the building, and may be difficult to see from the road. It is fun sliding backwards in the chair when getting ready for a photo op.

Santa in the big chair.

Big Blue Adirondack Chair

This huge blue Adirondack chair brings many visitors to Galesburg just to take a picture in it. It brings a smile and giggle to everyone. Those of us who remember Lily Tomlin as Edith Ann will feel like she did in her huge chair.
