37 West Park Square NE, Marietta, Georgia 30060
Come learn about the history of the Brumby Chair Company, and watch as craftsmen demonstrate how the chairs are handcrafted and why they have been treasured as family heirlooms for more than a century.
In 1875, after purchasing a lathe for $25 on the County Courthouse steps, James Remley Brumby and Thomas Brumby began making their first rocking chairs. Initially started as Brumby and Brother, they later incorporated as The Brumby Chair Company. These two brothers started a tradition that has continued for over 140 years. Little did they know that, more than a century later, the Brumby® Rocker would be an icon of southern tradition and known worldwide. Through the years, the company has remained in the family and is still headquartered in Marietta.
$10 per person in advance and $15 per person at the door.
