"Crowdy Crawn" is a Cornish expression for "a mixture of fun." A mixed bag of learning, lore and laughter awaits visitors to this event that will include traditional domestic crafts and Cornish storytelling. The event is part of Mineral Point's weekend celebration of Cornish culture.
Crowdy Crawn events are free. Regular admission rates for full tours: adults $10; children (5-17) $5; students and senior citizens (65 and over) $8.50; family (two adults and two or more dependent children 5-17) $27.
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.
