About Mineral Point, WI

You’ve probably heard of the famous Mineral Point traditions: art galleries, working artists’ studios, historic sites, workshops, cultural events, homemade pizza, pasty, figgyhobbin, and other Cornish traditions – not to mention artisan cheeses, historic lodging, and more. It could take you all day to go up and down the few blocks of High Street, and yet there would still be more to discover!

Mineral Point was settled in 1827 and quickly became a commerce center in the lead region. On Independence day, 1836, Henry Dodge was sworn in as the first Governor of the Wisconsin Territory, making Mineral Point “The Place Where Wisconsin Began.” Miners from Cornwall, England, began arriving during the 1830s. In addition to mining, they constructed stone homes that resembled those from their homeland, now part of the city’s historic district.

Several museums like Pendarvis Historic Site, the Mineral Point Depot (the oldest existing depot in Wisconsin), and Orchard Lawn are great ways for you to step back in time for a short while.

Annual events include a July 4th celebration, the Cornish Festival (complete with food tasting, of course), the fall art tour, and holiday events. The Mineral Point Fairgrounds host our county fair, harness racing, an annual regional high school rodeo, and a lot of other events.

A long list of traditions and an extensive history make Mineral Point an excellent place to live. If you’re looking to make the move, check out one of the listings below and find a property that fits your needs.
