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.

Large Indoor Rocking 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!
