Uncle Tom's Cabin Historic Site, Dresden, Ontario

Black walnut rocking chairs with elaborate folk carving found in the Dresden area, 3rd quarter 19th century. Several similar chairs are known from the same area including three in the collection of Uncle Tom’s Cabin Historic Site. Most, this example included, have provenance linking them to the Dawn Settlement and are possibly the products of Black students at the British American Institute.
