Schemmer was proud to help put a piece of Blair’s history back into the community as a 21st-century park pavilion. The funding repaired walls and floors, built two chimneys, replaced doors, siding and roof and provided four-season weatherization. Exterior, elevated patios resemble old train platforms. It will serve as a bicycle trailhead, picnic shelter and performance site. The building may also be used for interpretative transportation displays showcasing the city’s early rail history and its link to the Lincoln Highway, the nation’s first transcontinental road.
