September Presentation on the Brownfield Rocker...

   At the Historical Societies September 21, 2013 meeting former Brownfield resident Jo Harmon will present a talk on the unique Brownfield rocker.  Some of you may have one of these treasures in your attic!  If you do, please bring along a photograph of it to share and to have Jo authenticate your rocker!

   Ms. Harmon will focus on Brownfield resident Hiram Seavey who worked in the 1870's and 80's making rockers in his small mill.  She will talk about the Seavey family, the late 19th century in Brownfield and the chair's unique construction techniques.  Ms. Harmon will also bring along examples from her own collection.  You won't want to miss this presentation so mark your calendars!
