Antique Highboy, A Brief History
The highboy originated in the 18th Century in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It usually consisted
of two parts, one sitting on top of another. Craftsmen from all over the world first started producing these masterpieces and
were usually the fanciest pieces of furniture in anyoneís home. The problem with highboys is that they normally stood over nine
feet tall and most homes had eight foot ceilings. People then would remove the top section and many of the highboys were separated.
The ward 8 Farmers Market is held at THEARC at 1901 Mississippi Ave, SE in Washington, DC from June thru November. This farmers
market is open on Saturdays from 9 AM to 2 PM.
