Wooden bench original to the Uberuaga boardinghouse. Rectangular with two feet and four legs, a single plank for a seat, and four diagonal supports attached at the outside of the legs and at the bottom-middle of the seat. Both legs have a triangular section cut out at the base, creating the two feet on each leg. The bench does not have a finish or stain. At some point a strip of some kind of material was attached to the top of the bench. This strip is mildewed and the wood is slightly raised, as if less worn or less sun damaged than the area immediately around it.
