Uniontown Things to Do
This like a community Thanksgiving on the first Sunday in March. We are fortunate to be able to share it with them. It also helps support the community building where it is held. Bingo is on the main floor.Related to:

Car only. You can fly into Spokane, Lewiston, Pullman but from there, it is auto only. No buses, trolleys or other. No bicycle or walking paths either but from Pullman, it is legal and would be respected but a tad dangerous.
Walking or by car or bicycle. Most streets are paved and all are easy to walk and drive.
Uniontown Warnings and Dangers
Farm equipment during planting and harvesting. It's not bad but you should try to be aware and alert for large, slow moving equipment. The people driving them are very aware of the area and try to pull off when possible, or flag you by when safe. They are good guys and gals and would buy you a drink if they met you. Relax, enjoy the scenery and keep in mind if you happen to be following one is that the person who is driving it, is trying to make living.
Uniontown Tourist Traps
The police!!!! Honestly, you will get stopped and ticketed if you go through town at the highway speed. The highway goes through this very small town and the law expects you to slow down for the signs. A lot of the town is on the highway, so kids are crossing all the time. The MPH signs give you plenty of time to slow down on both sides. And very cleverly, the speed up again signs are a bit sooner but past the congestion.
Favorite thing: 1. Go to Eleanore's Tavern and Restaurant. It's on the main drag, you can't miss it. Giant, dripping hamburgers and wonderful reuben sandwiches. Plus beer and pool with the true locals. The atmosphere is a yuppy place gone redneck.
2. The Churchyard Inn. This is an old convent that has been converted into a very nice Bed and Breakfast. Lots of antiques, every room has a theme. Very romantic and somehow rustic too. Not lacking in any way but every room seems to make one feel away from it all. They have tours if asked and an open house during the annual Uniontown Sausage Feed.
3. The little shops. There are few shops in Uniontown, truly you can count them on one hand but you will meet some personalities who will be interesting and be happy to bargain with you. Typical, slightly eccentric, antique dealers. I love 'em.
Uniontown and nearby Colton are German/ Catholic towns settled during or shortly after the Civil War.
Fondest memory: The Uniontown Sausage feeds. We mark it yearly on our calendar and go with a large group of friends. The menu is homemade German sausage, sauerkraut, mashed potatoes, corn, rolls. applesauce, dill pickles and lucious desserts. We don't like to spend more than a few minutes in line so we get there during breakfast time (same menu). As many times as we have been there, we always spend the day. They also have bingo and raffles to raise money for the community hall. True Americana at it's best.
