I received an e-mail recently from someone in Greensboro, North Carolina, that had come into possession of some chairs -- one with markings that it came from the Fowler Chair Company. Fortunately for all of us, when this person did a little research online, this site gave him just enough information to contact me and ultimately send along some pictures of the chair. Following are the pictures and then after the pictures, you will find some information:
The chair company eventually moved to Pennsylvania and curiously (I say curiously because Fowlerville has had so many fires in its history), the chair factory burned to the ground after relocating in that state.
As you can see, the squint shot today is of the house Russell Tubbs used to live in. He was the manager of the chair company while it was still in our village.
I would like to pass along a special thank you to that person in Greensboro that took enough time to do a little research and then a little more time to take such wonderful pictures and send them to me. I'm sure these pictures have brought back some memories for my readers.
