Midsummer Spirits

In Celtic lore, Midsummer is one of the times in the year when the boundaries between the natural and the supernatural worlds are thinner, and spirits and other mythological creatures can associate with humans. Come to Pendarvis to see which "spirits" we have coaxed into our world, and find out what they can teach us about the world they lived in.

Ticket Info: Adults $10; children (5-17) $5; under 5 free

Location Description: Nestled on a rocky, wooded hillside, Pendarvis comprises six historic stone and stone-and-log cottages built by immigrant Cornish miners in the 1830s and '40s during the Wisconsin Territory's lead-mining boom. Nearby Merry Christmas Mine Hill still bears the signs of early mining activity, and a 43-acre restored prairie reveals the unspoiled wilderness found by the first arriving settlers.
