Long Description:
"The Rotunda is an octagonal, red-brick building built in 1864 as an exhibition hall for the Gasconade County Agricultural Association. One story in height, the building is capped by a pavilion roof with double cupolas. The Rotunda was the center of activity of the popular agricultural fairs held throughout the late nineteenth century and the focus of annual wine displays and competitions. Located on the site of the old fairgrounds, now a city park, the Rotunda is the only remaining fair building other than a wooden bandstand. With the exception of some minor alterations, the building retains its historic appearance and association with the ethnic, agricultural, and architectural heritage of Hermann" - National Register of Historic Places nomination

The building is now only occasionally used for community events but most sits vacant. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
