The Red Chair Travels Has Arrived at The BEALL MANSION

Move over Flat Stanley.The latest travel icon has finally made its way to the Midwest! The Red Chair has arrived at The BEALL MANSION and is ready for relaxation, action, and adventure. 

The Red Chair movement started at Woods Hole Inn on Cape Cod with a single photograph. From there it took off and the chair was sent to other Inns in the New England area. After that in went to the East Coast and some Southern states in 2014, then in 2015 the chair got to experience the West Coast. 2016 brought a huge adventure when it traveled all the way through Canada and Alaska. Now 2017 is the year of Midwest and we finally have the Chair! (To View the full story of the chair visit Red Chair Travels.Com)

The whole point of The Red Chair is to make more people aware of the many benefits of staying at bed and breakfast inns and of nearby attractions and activities. From a welcome by Alton Mayor Brent Walker to its visit of the Robert Wadlow statute, gardens at Lewis & Clark Community College the Piasa Bird, The Red Chair has already begun experiencing the hospitality and fun things to see and do of the Meeting of the Great Rivers All Around Alton area.
