The Troutman Authentic Kennedy Presidential Rocker is heirloom quality and has earned a special place in history.

This good old-fashioned southern porch rocker has become famously known as the Kennedy Rocker because President John F. Kennedy so loved his rocker and took it with him everywhere.

The secret of this chair’s comfort lies in the shrewdly planned steam-bent curve of the back post, which sweep in to give firm support to the sitter’s back, and yet carry his weight down to the exact point on the rockers where they contact the floor.

This makes for perfect, restful balance. Many physicians recognize the healthful influence of rocking chair sitting as an aid to circulation and as a reliever of tension.

Here’s a little history about “Kennedy Rockers.”

In 1953, Dr. Janet Travell from New York purchased what she called her “Carolina Rocker” for her office. Future events would press the company adopt this name and eventually stamped the trademarked “Carolina Rocker” on every chair.

A patient of Dr. Travell’s was a young senator from Massachusetts, suffering from chronic back trouble. His comfort in the rocker coupled with her medical advice led to a deal being struck.

She would acquire another rocker for him if he would use it for therapy. That Senator of course went on to become one of America’s most remembered presidents. The rest, as they say, is history.

Photos of the President John F. Kennedy Jr. in his chair in the Oval Office began to appear. Response from the media and the public was astounding. P. & P.’s (now Troutman) phone rang constantly. Newspapers, individuals, retail stores, world leaders, politicians all wanted to know more or to buy a “Kennedy Rocker.”
