Inscription.  This pavilion was built as a 450-seat lecture hall for the Monona Lake Assembly. Established to provide instruction for Sunday school teachers, it soon became a popular summer camp for tourists from throughout the Midwest. As many as 15,000 came each year for religious instruction, entertainment, recreation, and lectures by such notables as William McKinley and "Fighting Bob" La Follette. The Hall is one of the last buildings remaining from Madison's heyday as a resort community.
 
Erected 1988 by the Madison Landmarks Commission. (Marker Number 83.)
