Mabel Tainter Center for the Arts
This grand building was erected in 1890 by Lumber Baron Andrew Tainter and his wife Bertha in memory of their daughter Mabel, who died at age 19. It houses one of the most beautifully restored historic theaters in the country. Since the 1890s, performing artists, lecturers, comedians, musicians, and home-town folk have “trod the boards” of this Gilded Age treasure. In its early years, for fifty cents a ticket, families of lumberjacks and brickmakers could be transported out of their commonplace lives into the world of live theater. Audiences continue to fill the ornate theater to enjoy live performances today.
