Mining for Justice


Explore the mystery of "Mining for Justice" at Pendarvis! Follow in Chloe’s footsteps and see many of the places she explored during her week at Pendarvis. See real historic artifacts featured in the book not normally seen on tour. We’ll finish the tour with light refreshments and a Q&A and book signing with author Kathleen Ernst!
This will be the first showing in Mineral Point of Kathleen's newly revised, richly illustrated program that takes readers 'behind the scenes' of her just-released tenth Chloe mystery, Fiddling With Fate. This story begins and concludes in Chloe's hometown of Stoughton WI, with most of the book taking place during the previous two centuries in the beautiful Hardanger region of Norway.

Location Information

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.
