As a Menomonie native, I grew up and didn't think much about the Mabel Tainter...it was just the city library to me. Now that I've grown up and moved away, I've come to cherish what a truly impressive landmark the Memorial and the Theatre is. It's one of the few great old buildings that survived "progress" in Menomonie over the years and it helps keep the arts alive in the bustling little city. Inside, past the marble floors and the gilt edges, is a magnificent little theatre, described by docents over the years as "a copy of Ford's Theatre in Washington." It's both a wonderful place to see a play, or to perform one...I've done both in my time. Take the time to see this Victorian beauty. You'll be glad you did!
