1. Alice B. McClelland Memorial Bandshell. Financed by William S. McClelland, a local banker, businessman, and civic leader. He constructed the bandshell in honor of his wife, Alice, and donated it to the City. The structure is a good example of parabolic acoustical design and one of the two remaining historic bandshells in Florida.
