Swasey Pavilion in Exeter, New Hampshire

As part of our building history series, today we take a look at the Swasey Pavilion in Exeter, New Hampshire:

“This handsome bandstand was given to the town in 1916 by Ambrose Swasey, inventor of the turret lathe, which revolutionized the production of machine tools. Designed by Henry Bacon, architect of the Lincoln Memorial, the pavilion replaced an earlier seasonal wooden bandstand. The Exeter Brass Band (video) was founded in 1847 and continues to perform each summer beneath the fine bronze roof and elaborate mosaics in the ceiling.”
