Discover Wisconsin’s Cornish
History and the Couple
Who Helped Preserve It

Every building tells a story, and at Pendarvis, there are plenty, each with a unique narrative to tell. Your journey through this picturesque cluster of stone structures will take you not only through the stories of the people who originally created and inhabited them, but also the story of Bob Neal and Edgar Hellum, the couple who  salvaged, restored, and made these buildings shine again.

Rock Church Construction INC has been working hard to restore the windows and doors of two of our 1840s Cornish cottages, Pendarvis and Polperro. They were removed late last fall and carefully restored in an indoor workshop over the winter. Work began to reinstall the windows and doors today. We can't wait to see the overall improvement this project will make for both buildings! ... See MoreSee Less
