The famous bricks that paved the walk in front of the Panida Theater, each one inscribed with the name of individuals and organizations that helped to ensure the beauty and renovation of our town’s most historic structure, those that survived are now available for the donors to take home. These treasures recall the heart of Sandpoint and will find a place of honor in donors’ homes and gardens.
As many bricks as possible were carefully saved during the upgrading of First Avenue and are now displayed alphabetically in the Panida Little Theatre. The names of those whose bricks could be saved are now listed below.
The City of Sandpoint installed a special brass inlay in front of the Panida to celebrate and honor what the bricks represented. It says 'Panida Theater Community Supported ~ Mission Driven'. An additional commemorative tribute will be designed to thank those who generously gave to creating the original walkway. Donations toward this tribute are greatly appreciated.
The historic bricks are available to be picked up Saturday December 19, Tuesday December 22, and Thursday December 24, from noon to 2:00 pm.
