A gazebo is a common garden structure often found in warm climates to provide shade.

Dairy owner Christian Mattly built this gazebo next to a dormitory for students enrolled in courses at the Kern County High School farm around 1905.

Students were instructed in growing alfalfa, corn, cotton, fruit, vegetables and flowers to build their knowledge of agricultural practices. Instructors also taught students how to care for chickens, cows, horses, and turkeys.The high school farm was originally located at 25th and M Streets and later moved to Stine Road in Bakersfield.

This structure was a gift from the Kern County Union High School District in 1966.
