Since 1917, the Fireman's Park Pavilion has been a cornerstone of community life, serving as the location of exhibits, concerts, dances, and other social events. After 85 years of steady use, however, the building was showing its age. Piecemeal repairs removed original windows and replaced areas of original siding. Like many old buildings, the mechanical systems of the pavilion were outdated. Columbus citizens realized that the best way to tackle such a large project was to produce a restoration plan, known as a historic structure report. This technical document provides an architectural analysis of the pavilion, from its construction to the time of the report. The evolution of the building over time is informed by the rich history of the pavilion and its users. It includes an analysis of existing conditions and recommendations for repair and treatment.
