Hampton band shell set for restoration

Posted:

HAMPTON (KWWL)-- Fundraising efforts have more than paid off for a piece of musical history in Hampton.

In March, the Hampton band shell was deemed structurally unsafe and the city considered tearing it down.

But a Des Moines company offered to restore it, for about $80,000.

On Monday, officials say $108,000  has been raised to fix up the band shell.

The work should be finished in the spring, just in time for Hampton Municipal Band's next season.
