Historic opera curtain hung for display during annual Uniontown Sausage Feed

 

February 28, 2019

Curtain from Uniontown Opera House, circa 1915

A bit of history will be on display at the 66th annual Uniontown Sausage Feed. The Uniontown opera house curtain dating back to 1915 is now covering the stage curtain of the Uniontown Community Building for display during the sausage dinner.

The curtain was removed from the opera house above the Jacobs' Bakery and Bistro before 1964 and rolled up. The curtain is 18 feet wide by 11 feet high and the size and fragility of the curtain makes it difficult to display. With much local help, organizers figured a way to hang the curtain for this year's dinner. Some people remember seeing the curtain in the 1950s.

Also on display will be blueprint maps of the town of Uniontown dated in the early 1900s, a sample election ballot and historical photos of the town's businesses.

The Sausage Feed will be Sunday, March 3, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. in the Uniontown Community Building located on Highway 195.

This is an all-you-can-eat meal that can be eaten in the dining room on a first-come, first-served basis, or get your dinners to go with no wait. The menu will include sausage made by community members from a secret recipe, mashed potatoes, sauerkraut, green beans, applesauce, rolls, pie and a beverage. For those 21 and older, a beer garden will be available. Tickets available only at the door, cash and checks only please. Prices are $13 for adults, $9 for kids aged 6 to 12 and $2 for kids younger than six.

Lewiston musician Bodie Dominquez will entertain during the wait for the much-anticipated sausage.
