Description 

The City Square Park Bandstand in Humboldt is nominated to the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion A for its local significance in the area of Entertainment/Recreation. The public square originated with the platting of the town in 1857, and has functioned primarily as a community gathering space. Humboldt's community band formed in 1866 under the leadership of former military bandmaster Richard Redfield, and - performed in the park as early as 1867. The current bandstand was built in 1907 and sits at the center of the park.
