Woman and child sitting on the Central Park bandstand. The third block (Block 9) from the river along Mill Street (now North Main Street) was envisioned by city planners, Joseph and Malinda Kelly to be the center of the city so he set it aside as the public square, and it has ever since remained open as public land and park. It is now named Central Park. Central Park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the North Main Street Historic District. 1918 postmark. Number A-58774.
