New gazebo coming to Fayetteville square

An iconic gathering spot in the historic Fayetteville square is being refreshed.

After numerous repairs to the original Lane Brown Gazebo outside the Fayette County administrative complex at Stonewall Avenue and South Glynn Street, a new structure is being erected in the same spot starting this week. The city has begun demolition of the old gazebo, which was built in the 1990s. The new one will be similar in size and will cost approximately $20,000 using revenue from the hotel/motel tax administered through the Main Street Tourism Association. Completion is projected for the end of May.

In 2012 the original gazebo was named after developer E. Lane Brown, who passed away in 2011 after years of serving on the Downtown Development Authority and other local boards to promote tourism in Fayetteville.
