Since 1630, Lynn has had a common. In the 19th century, when Lynn was the shoe capital of the world, the city refined the shape of the 10 acre common to look like the sole of a shoe. Our master plan recommended a walking loop with mile markers and LED lights; a rehabilitated bandstand, fountain and comfort station. The City addressed the structural problems of the Frederick Douglass Bandstand first. The Bandstand was re-named in 1944 to honor Frederick Douglass, an ex-slave, who lived in Lynn from 1841 to 1845 and devoted his life to the abolition of slavery.
