The Music Man Square is about music, fun, nostalgia, historical preservation, and community pride.

I'm a Music Man geek so I loved it! Meredith Willson's boyhood home was closed for repairs when we went but it's beautiful on the outside.

Super fantastic! Loved it all. Wish the house was already restored. It was the only thing we missed.
