The Center Harbor Bicentennial Bandstand, dedicated on July 6, 1997, is a popular community gathering place. It is the home site of the Center Harbor Town Band. Formed in 1878 under the direction of Stephinus Kelley, it is one of the oldest continually playing ensembles in the state. Meredith Village Savings bank and private donors helped make completion of the project possible.
