In 1926, Francis Dale organized and conducted a community band, the Cold Spring Musical Society, and began a fundraising drive to build a performance venue. In 1928, he built the bandstand, a landmark that appears on the village seal, with the assistance of family and friends. The grandchildren of Francis and his wife, Imogen, donated the plaque.
