Large Indoor Rocking Chair

Sadly, the shop closed in 2020. We just tried to go see it. They said you can see it through the window, but it is not an attraction you can enjoy like in past years. The shop relocated, but doesn't have a big enough space to house the chair.

A finely crafted giant rocking chair. We hope its days as an attraction are not over.

Large Indoor Rocking Chair

Not only is the rocking chair comically huge, but it's in one of seven Amana villages. The broom shop housing the rocking chair has visitor maps available so be sure to pick one up and visit the other villages. There are museums rich with cultural history, quaint general stores, wineries, and much more.

Big chair.

It is in High Amana. There are a lot of little villages in the area. High Amana is about 3.5 miles from Old Amana. This is so cool! I was expecting it to be big, but this chair is HUGE!

A great photo op -- it's indoors, so you don't have to brave any bad weather.
