The Cornish Language and St. Piran's Day (Postponed)
Tuesday, March 05, 2013, 12:30–1:30 pm
This event has been postponed due to expected inclement weather. Check back soon for a rescheduled date and time. Benjamin Bruch, a world-renowned authority on Celtic studies, will give a special presentation on the Cornish language and St. Piran's Day (Cornwall's national holiday, celebrated annually on March 5). The 60-minute presentation is free and open to the public, and attendees will have an opportunity after the talk to register for a series of subsuquent language courses, the first of which will begin in the afternoon following this initial presentation.

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.
