A visit to Volunteer Park

I had a few moments to spare before a meeting and pulled into Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill. Did you know the land was purchased in 1876 and first used as a cemetery!? and then later as this city park! The reservoir was built in 1901. The park was redesigned in1903 y the Olmsted Bros. and the water tower was built in 1907. Pretty cool to see what is have become…and nothing like enjoying what’s in your own backyard!
