The Mabel Tainter Center of The Arts

On the Road Friday
Today we head to Mabel Tainter Center of the Arts
Menomonie, Wisconsin

 Called "The most significant building in western Wisconsin from an historical standpoint," by former Executive Director Gerald Schuster, The Mabel Tainter is listed on the National register of Historic Places, is a charter member of the League of Historic American Theaters and is designated as a Wisconsin Historic Marker Site. The Theater Historical Society of America views The Mabel Tainter as one of the top ten historic theaters in the U.S.
 Filling the spiritual, musical, social, intellectual and aesthetic hunger of the human spirit, The Mabel Tainter Center for the Arts is a memorial to Mabel S. Tainter.
 A lover of the arts, Mabel died in 1886 at age nineteen, in the beauty and promise of youth.
 Dedicated on July 3, 1890 by her parents, Andrew and Bertha Tainter, the memorial is of permanent value and utility to west central Wisconsin.

That is our tour of the Mabel Tainter. I would love to see it decorated for Christmas.
Come back next Friday, for a tour of another beautiful historic place in Wisconsin.
Thank you for coming along. 
Have fun exploring your own towns and cities. Be sure to drop me a message of a great place to visit. We are always excited to explore a new place.
