Rocking chairs: Adirondack rocking chairs have the same comfort and look of a traditional Adirondack chair except the legs are on rockers. If you enjoy the rhythmic comfort of a rocker, you may wish to consider an Adirondack rocking chair; it makes a great addition to a front or back porch.
Gilborn acknowledges that the multiplicity of designs and dearth of documentation make it difficult to be definitive about the chair’s heritage.

Awesome info! Don’t need to run to the store and buy new give your old stuff a face lift with a few cans of spray paint. Just finished my Grandparents old metal framed chairs (60+ years old). They had MANY layers of paint on them. The sanding was the worst part. But now they are both shiny green and haven’t looked this good in years. Next step is the plastic lawn chairs. They are about 10 years old and need help. But that is just a spray can away. Reduce, reused, recycle!

He recovered, and shared his experience in an 1881 book titled The Wilderness Cure.

“If I were a geneticist, I would say they would be different species of the same family,” says Craig Gilborn, former director at the Adirondack Museum, now known as the Adirondack Experience, in Blue Mountain Lake. Gilborn pointed out the similarity between the cure chair and the Lee-Bunnell “Westport chair” in his book, Adirondack Furniture and the Rustic Tradition.
