The Adirondack Chair
An Adirondack chair is a type of chair used primarily in an outdoors setting. The precursor to today's Adirondack chair was designed by Thomas Lee in 1903. He was on vacation in Westport, New York and he needed outdoor chairs for his summer home. He tested the first designs on his family. The original Adirondack chair was made with eleven pieces of wood, cut from a single board. It had a straight back and seat, which were set at a slant to sit better on the steep mountain inclines of the area. It also featured wide armrests which became a hallmark of the Adirondack Chair.

Today's Adirondack chairs usually feature a rounded back and contoured seat. The style has also been translated to other pieces of furniture, from gliders to love seats. Some modern adirondack chairs are made out of engineered wood instead of wood. After arriving at a final design for the "Westport plank chair," Lee offered it to Harry Bunnell, a carpenter friend in Westport, who was in need of a winter income. Bunnell quickly realized the chair was the perfect item to sell to Westport's summer residents and apparently without asking Lee's permission, Bunnell filed for and received a patent in 1905. Bunnell manufactured his plank chairs for the next twenty years. His 'Westport Chairs' were all signed and made of hemlock in colors of green or medium dark brown. Adirondack chairs are becoming popular as outdoor seating at cafés, because the flat armrests are suitable for setting food and beverages on, making it possible to provide individual seating without using tables.


The Adirondack Mountains
The Adirondack mountain range is located in the northeastern part of New York that runs through Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Herkimer, Lewis, St. Lawrence, Saratoga, Warren, and Washington counties. The mountains are often included by geographers in the Appalachian Mountains, but they are geologically more similar to the Laurentian Mountains of Canada.[citation needed] They are bordered on the east by Lake Champlain and Lake George, which separate them from the Green Mountains in Vermont. They are bordered to the south by the Mohawk Valley and to the west by the Tug Hill Plateau, separated by the Black River. This region is south of the St. Lawrence River.

A brief history of the Adirondacks from the first sighting by a European in 1535,
through the eras of trapping, iron mining, and lumbering, to the development of railroad and steamboat lines that led to the influx of tourists and building of the "Great Camps".
The sixty years from 1870 to 1930 were the heyday of these camps, the "Guilded Age" of the Adirondacks. Kaiser gives a fascinating account both of the personalities who engineered and financed these fabulous structures and of the bulidings themselves.
