The winter Pendarvis Speaker Series is back for its third year! Join us this winter to hear fascinating stories about Wisconsin and the people who shaped it. Talks are every third Thursday (no December speaker) and give those with a curiosity in history and science a chance to look in on the latest research being done in these fields right in their own communities.
Pendarvis, 114 Shake Rag St
Mineral Point, WI 53565-1063
Tucked away in historic Mineral Point, Pendarvis celebrates the restoration and preservation efforts of Robert Neal and Edgar Hellum, who saved a significant part of Wisconsin’s past. Their legacy includes the six historic stone and stone-and-log cottages which comprise Pendarvis today, built by Cornish immigrants in the 1840s 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.
