November’s answer: This 19th-century bandstand occupies the triangular park in the town of Gainesville in Sumter County. The town was founded by Moses Lewis, a New Englander lured to the “old Southwest,” as the Gulf states were known in the early 19th century. Gainesville, on the Tombigbee River, was a prosperous town in the antebellum period, but has a population of about 200 today.
