Gardner Chair.

Bicentennial Giant Chair

Field review by the editors.

Gardner, Massachusetts

One of a series of outdoor giant chairs -- each one larger than the last -- erected since 1905 in this self-proclaimed "Chair City of the World." The current model is 20 feet, 7 inches tall and weighs 3,000 pounds.

Another big chair, this one 12 feet tall and indoors, is displayed at the Gardner Heritage State Park's Visitor Center. And there's a huge yellow chair promoting a furniture company along Route 2A.
