A walk down Mineral Point streets evokes a stroll through a Cornish village. Miners from Cornwall, England were among the first to settle here. Their homes and businesses, crafted of stone, have been carefully restored. The city’s historic district includes early architecture of the Midwest, with many buildings pre-dating statehood. Today you find artists and artisans in studios and galleries, along with antique and specialty shops.
