The Chairy Orchard

A very unique experience, especially for the unaware who anticipate picking fruit. Please don't overlook the "chandeliers."

Chairy Orchard

Met Rose and her neighbor -- charming ladies. Visitors can bring chairs, move them around, place them in circles, lines, whatever. Fun, offbeat idea. When we were there, they were hauling off some chairs that had succumbed to time and weather. Good therapy for those who feel the need to rearrange furniture.

The Chairy Orchard

Beautiful little pocket park, well maintained by owners. We met one of the ladies, and she was delightful. They have stuffed bears you can move around for photo ops.

Come and see a fully realized furniture pun!

The Chairy Orchard was created by "The Chary Fairies," two women who live on either side of the vacant lot in which it is built. It was begun in 2013, and has steadily grown since then. Visitors are welcome, and are encouraged to donate their own chairs.
