About This Image
Hooray for the town of Traer! A commemorative plaque on the bandstand states that the original City Park bandstand (now called Taylor Park) was built in 1905. In 1977, the town rebuilt the bandstand almost exactly as it had been. The bandstand appeared very well maintained when I visited it 36 years later in 2013. Even the tree in the foreground seems to have survived. It is exciting to see one of a city's cultural landmarks so well preserved.
