Head into Columbia, Illinois using south bound Route 3.
Turn left at North Main Street and continue south.
Approximately 1 mile, turn left on Kunz Street.
Go 1 block to North Metter, turn right on North Metter.
Next to the public library you will find Metter Park.
Take time to enjoy the children's play area or a picnic lunch.
Just to the left of the playground you will see a white gazebo. Follow the brick path from the gazebo to the City Bandstand. This Bandstand was originally built in 1897 to provide a gathering place for the citizens of Columbia. On warm summer evenings a band would play in side on a stage, the windows to the bandstand would all be opened and people would dance both inside or in the park. The hardest part about dancing is usually taking the first step. To find this letterbox look under the first step on the north side of the bandstand.
