    The historic Mabel Tainter Theater.

Menomonie, a former lumber town on the Red Cedar River, now provides a rich harvest of antiques. The downtown also offers a pair of beautifully restored historic sites, the Mabel Tainter Memorial Theater and the Wilson Place Museum. In addition, Menomonie is the gateway to the Red Cedar State Trail, a 14-mile hiking and biking route that includes an 846-foot-long former railroad bridge. Visitors come from far and near to visit Legacy Chocolates for a taste of handmade sinfully delicious truffles and more.
