Art & History in Mineral Point

Rolling hills, majestic bluffs, and a town filled with charm and history…that’s Mineral Point.

It’s no wonder that Mineral Point was named Best History Town by Wisconsin Trails magazine. You can hop onto a guided historic tour or step back in time at the Mineral Point Railroad Museum, Wisconsin’s oldest depot. Learn about the city’s rich mining history at Pendarvis, a collection of stone-and-log cottages built by English miners in the 1840s.

Sneak in a visit and you’ll also find a rich community of artisans and craftsmen of all mediums: Pottery, glass, wood, painting, you name it. Whether it’s the vibrant stained glass from Jill Engels’ studio or one of Karma Grotelueschen’s captivating landscape portraits, you won’t leave without a new conversation starter for your home. Most galleries are open to the public year round, and unlike many modern galleries, you can learn more about the work and process from the artists themselves!

There’s a ton more to explore in Mineral Point including a beautifully restored opera house, wonderful bicycling trails, and cute, quaint eateries. Enjoy and as always, let us know if you go!
