Thomasville...The Chair City 

The cornerstone for the new Big Chair of Thomasville was laid on January 9, 1951.  The chair replaced the original that had weathered too much. When completed, the new Big Chair of Thomasville stood 30 feet high from the bottom of the 12-foot base to the top of the 18-foot chair.  The seat was 10 ½ feet wide.
