Overview

Mineral Point, Wisconsin (Postcard History Series) by Kay Price, Marian Hendricks


Mineral Point is home to the only surviving territorial governmental buildings in the United States, the first Wisconsin capitol, and the oldest surviving railroad depot in the Badger State. The village obtained its name from the mineral spring waters that filled the caves and lead mines of the region. With its scenic beauty and amazing architecture, Mineral Point is well poised to cultivate heritage tourists, who long to experience places and activities that authentically represent the past. They are seeking the irreplaceable historic, cultural, and natural resources that can only be found in a town as rich with history as Mineral Point. This artists’ mecca offers pottery and art shops to explore and appreciate. The combination of both provides the explorer an unusual and interesting place to visit for a long weekend or a family vacation.
