Oskaloosa Bandstand

-A A +A
1912, Frank E. Wetherell. City Park, Market St. S. at High Ave. E.

The octagonal bandstand is reminiscent of the nineteenth century in the exotic filigree of its metalwork, but at the same time its detailing with references to the classical and Arts and Crafts tradition brings it well within the present century. Small curved metal balconies project from every other side, and a curved metal staircase leads up from the ground to the platform. The solid balustrade contains tile designed by Charles L. Barnhouse.
