The Amana Style Bench...

Often outside Amana homes and businesses you will see a very comfortable bench on which to rest your weary feet and admire the surroundings. Built by local wood workers it seems it was a design of Mr A.T. Berger in Upper South Amana. Most were left to weather naturally, some were painted. The curved back and foot rest made it quite unique and comfortable. Berger was very talented and now many other wood workers make them.
