Highland Park Pavilion, Rochester, N.Y.

Dedicated to the children of Rochester on September 29, 1890, the open-air Ellwanger and Barry Memorial Pavilion (also known as "The Children’s Pavilion") offered Rochesterians a beauitful, 360 degree panoramic view of Highland Park. Costly $7,000 to build (roughly $200,000 today), it was named after the generous, Mount Hope nurserymen, George Ellwanger and Patrick Barry, who endowed 20-acres of their land to the city of Rochester. Inspired by Park Commissioner George W. Elliott, and overseen by landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmstedt (of Central Park fame), the circular, wooden pavilion stood three-stories tall (46' high) and 62' in diameter. It endured 73 years, until 1958, when it was deemed unsafe and fenced off from use. It was ultimately razed on April 17, 1960.
