Description: This Almodington bench is a document or exact copy of the earliest known wooden garden bench in America, made for Almodington Plantation house in Somerset County, Maryland, circa 1750.

Benches of this type were called "garden seats" in the 18th century. This copy is of yellow pine and is painted white, as was the original. Almodington probably had a pair of these benches facing each other at the porch entrance to the historic house facing the Manokin River on Maryland's Eastern Shore. The original Almodington bench is now in the collection of MESDA, Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts in Winston Salem, N.C.
