Description:
  • Photos show views of the bandstand on the Lower Common in Wakefield. The wood and granite structure was built in 1885 from a $10,000 bequest Cornelius Sweetser donated to the town for park beautification purposes at the time of the "City Beautiful" movement in America. The bandstand recalls the exotic flavor of England's Brighton Pavilion, but also has details in the Queen Anne style.
