Band Shell in Belle Fourche Dubbed National Historic Place

The band shell in Herrmann Park of Belle Fourche has been added to the National Register of Historic Places, according to the Black Hills Pioneer. The band shell was among five other places recently selected to be included in the historic register.

Built in 1954, the band shell was selected to be included on the register as it is modeled after earlier band shells built in the 1920s and 1930s. The band shell has also played an important role in the community since its construction by hosting a variety of performances and gatherings.

To qualify for the National Register of Historic Places a building, site or other structure must be at least 50 years old and have significant history within a community.
