Longest Courthouse Bench.

World's Longest Courthouse Bench

Situated outside the courthouse in the central square in Fayetteville is the world's longest courthouse bench.

[Carolyn Earle, 02/26/2015]

The 58-foot-long beam, hewn from a single tree, has been in use as a bench since 1825. Not as smoothly worn as one might hope; watch out for splinters.
