Owned and operated by the State Historical Society, Pendarvis is a historic site interpreting the history of Cornish settlement and Wisconsin's lead-mining heyday. "Costumed interpreters offer guided tours through the Pendarvis complex, recalling the days when Mineral Point was a rough and tumble lead mining camp. They explain what brought the Cornish, with their expert knowledge of mining and stone masonry, their Celtic superstitions and their frugal foodways, to settle in this Shake Rag neighborhood." Pendarvis is open year-round for pre-arranged group tours, events and field trips.
