Information: 608-987-2122

Pendarvis is open daily May 27-October 29 from 10am to 5pm.

Pendarvis traces its beginnings to Wisconsin's territorial lead-mining heyday during the 1840s and '50s, when many immigrant Cornish miners settled in Mineral Point to work the mines. What remains today is a collection of stone and stone-and-log cottages built by these immigrants in the tradition of their native Cornwall. Nearby is a former mine site and a 43-acre restored prairie.
