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 not only tells the stories of the people who originally created and inhabited them, but also that of Bob and Edgar who salvaged, restored, and made these buildings shine again.
Tucked away in a valley in historic Mineral Point, Pendarvis celebrates the groundbreaking community of the first Wisconsin “badgers.” As you approach this charming neighborhood, the 19th century will instantly come alive through the quintessential limestone buildings and cozy nooks. Unearth the significant lead and zinc mining heritage of Wisconsin and get a taste of life as a miner in the young Badger State.
