Most People Have No Idea This Historic City In Wisconsin Even Exists

The miners are long gone and Wisconsin’s lead and zinc mines have been closed for decades. But you might not think so if you stepped into a little town called Pendarvis. The historic city in Wisconsin is a collection of buildings built by Cornish immigrants in the early 1800s – they were saved from destruction years later and are now protected forever and are open to visitors who want to explore a bit of the state’s rich mining history. Here’s what’s waiting for you at Pendarvis.

Pendarvis Historic Site is open seasonally. Admission tickets are required. See details and hours on the Pendarvis Historic Site website.
