Pavilion Park, ca 1897
The photograph is said to be taken by T.F. Tomlinson in 1897. The band in the photograph was know as the Belmont Band. There are several photographs of this band in the Vanishing Georgia collection. However, this post is about the Pavilion. The citation with his photograph states that this Pavilion was located at the site of Phil Reeve Stadium. The Reeve is the home of the Calhoun High School Yellow Jacket football team. Considering that I am one of the administrators at CHS I had to give us a plug. Back to the Pavilion! There is no landmarks of any type to mark the location of this part of Calhoun history that has vanished. Maybe somebody that reads this blog can shed some light on the history of the pavilion.
