Client: U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service
Project Type: Historic Structure Report
The marble monument was built as a bandstand large enough to hold an eighty-piece band. Once a popular site, the structure is now barely seen among the trees along Independence Avenue. Changes in the landscaping have isolated the memorial from the Mall, and it is no longer used for public gatherings. John G. Waite Associates, Architects prepared a historic structure report that outlines the history, existing conditions, and problems of repair for the memorial and its surrounding landscape, and makes recommendations for the restoration and rejuvenation of this significant structure on the National Mall.
