The original Dublin Cornet Band was founded in 1879 and represented Dublin as it toured around central Ohio for over 50 years. In 2010, through the vision and dedication of the Dublin Historical Society and generosity of the Dublin Foundation, this significant piece of Dublin’s heritage was resurrected for the City’s Bicentennial Celebration. This recreation of the Dublin Cornet Band has brought together a group of thirteen local professional-level musicians who are volunteering their time and talent to recreate an important part of Dublin’s past.
