Lowell’s bandstand lost to flood

August 31, 2013
The Marietta Times

The Lowell bandstand is the last of three articles about local landmarks that have disappeared. According to the 1880 census, Buell's Lowell had sixty-six heads of household-at least twenty-four of whom were born in Germany, Prussia, or Bavaria. Their names are worth mentioning because they are the ones who made music so popular in Lowell. They included Christian Becker, Jacob Becker, William Best, Adam Blankenbuhler, Christina Fritsche, Jacob Grosclose, Christian Henniger, Jacob Hollinger, Conrad Hopp, Samuel Landsettle, Philip Mattern, Christopher Radenbach, Jacob Rietz, Philip Rice, Frantz Schneider, John A. Schneider, Jacob Schramm, John J. Snyder, Valentine Spies, Earnest Verges, Henry Verges, Catherine Wagner, Franz Wilking, and Christian Wolfram. With many German settlers in the community during the mid- to late 1800's and their descendants by the early 1900's, music, concerts, and parades were common in Lowell. These activities were so important that a bandstand was erected sometime during the late 1800's or early 1900's.
