In August of 1930, Ellinwood businessman Fred Wolf deeded land to the City of Ellinwood with the provision that it be used and maintained as a public park. Mann and Company Architects of Hutchinson designed the band shell with construction beginning in January 1931 by Young Construction, also of Hutchinson. The band shell is blond brick construction with Art Deco detailing. In 1938 a concrete apron was placed in front of the stage area to accommodate larger orchestras. The band shell is significant for its association with the growth and development of Ellinwood.
