This Victorian cast-iron pavilion originally
served as a shelter for people waiting for
the trolley at 8th Avenue and 59th Street.
With a roof of gray slate and ironwork that
was typical of its time the structure as a
traveler's kiosk was used to shelter them
from the elements as they waited at the
south portico of the Park for trolley
It was moved from its original location to
Central Park and specifically to Hernshead around 1912 to clear the way for
the construction of the Maine Monument.
