Cincinnati in Hamilton County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
Lytle Park Series
It was Michael Mullen, a kindly councilman from the old Eighth Ward for 34 years, whose efforts brought about Lytle Park.
After his death in 1921, funds were collected for a new “memorial” bandstand replacing the park's original one. It was dedicated on October 12, 1935 to the memory of “Mike” Mullen and the park he loved.
Erected by Park Board Volunteers, the Garden Center of Greater Cincinnati, and Public-Spirited Citizens.
