Season 2016 Performances on the MainStreet Warner Stage
Jim Mitchell, along with his sister Katharine and her husband Neil Nevins, purchased the 16 East Main Street Warner building and property in 1998. Together they created the independent bookstore MainStreet BookEnds and Gallery on this site. In 2000 the three established MainStreet Warner, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to furthering the cultural development of Warner, and now housed in the Gallery. Bringing over 100 events annually to the bookstore, including Friday Night on MainStreet, Jim imagined extending this out into a three-season community park for music, authors and the arts. He had created the plans and started promoting the park idea when he died suddenly in 2008. With the support of the community, The Board of Directors for MainStreet Warner, Inc. has remained focused on the creation of this community park, his dream for Warner, as well as on scholarship and literacy programs
