Did you know that Bridgman’s is the sixth oldest Legacy Family business in the state of New Hampshire? With the 5th generation of the family currently managing the store, Bridgman’s is the oldest family legacy furniture store in the state.
The article and pictures below are from the recently published Valley Memories book which has many photos and histories of Upper Valley businesses and organizations. Copies of this book are very limited, but if you can find one, it is a walk down memory lane. The original location of the store was a basement location on North Park Street in Lebanon. Then a larger space and store front was found on West Park St. in Lebanon, and a new “modern” store was completed on the Miracle Mile in Lebanon in 1951. The business is currently located at this site.
For the past several years Bridgman’s and Ekornes have donated a Stressless Chair and Ottoman to the David’s House Charity Auction.
This year the Stressless Chair added $2,200 to the auction proceeds.
Stressless Chairs have a self adjusting lumbar support and an articulating headrest. They are endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association.
