This Is The Bench Where Jack Sat

Seat Of Power kennedy-bench.jpg

Having once born the assess of greatness, a wooden bench returns to it’s humble place of origin, the Milwaukee Journal.

John and Jackie Kennedy brought the Kennedy Magic to Milwaukee in the 1960 campaign, and a now storied piece of furniture had it’s brush with greatness. After a wandering career as retirement gift to a newspaper executive, the bench on which history’s fun couple sat is going back to the Journal courtesy of current owners The Nature Conservancy.

The furniture’s fate when the paper goes to that great recycling bin in the sky is unknown.
