Object Name Bench
Date 1916?-1930?
Description Wooden bench original to the Uberuaga boardinghouse. Rectangular with two feet and four legs, a single plank for a seat, and two diagonal supports attached between the feet and at the bottom-middle of the seat. Both legs have a triangular section cut out at the base, creating the two feet on each leg. This bench was most likely originally stained a dark color, the majority of the wood stain is worn off or discolored with age. Judging from the marks on the bottom of the seat, this bench appears to be homemade. Two pencil marks with wavy lines across them suggest a possible area first selected for the legs to be attached. Examining the grain of the wood, it appears to be either fir or hemlock.
