Legends of the Point

Friday, October 26, 2018

4:30pm - 7:30pm

Tommyknockers! Giants! Beasts! Bring your flashlight, grab your treasure map, listen to the legends, and gather clues to unlock the secret code word for your prize. Afterwards, enjoy a bonfire with s’mores and hot apple cider.

This event is appropriate for all ages! $5 per person, families of 4 or more are $20. Each participant will be given a treasure map that will lead them to story tellers in the historic houses. Listen to the stories and fill in the clues as you go along. The clue answers will spell out a secret code that can be used to claim a prize.

Remember to bring your flashlight for this spooky twilight walk!

Location Information

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.

Accessibility Information

Partially handicapped accessible. Reasonable accommodations will be made for individuals requiring a wheelchair for mobility. Call ahead to make arrangements.
