Inscription.  

The Round House is thought to have originally been built as a grandstand on the grounds of the Warwick Racing Track located northeast of Lititz. It was dismantled and reconstructed on its present site in the early months of 1880.

The Round House has been used during special events in the Park such as art exhibits, photo exhibits, and hobby shows. Today it is used mainly for storage of Park maintenance equipment.
