Mining Art And Adventure In Mineral Point, Wisconsin, A Town That Time Forgot

It was mealtime on Mineral Point’s Shakerag Street, and I couldn’t help but think of a history lesson that many Wisconsin kids learned in grade school. According to legend, the Cornish women who lived in this old mining town in the 1830s waved rags in the air, so their husbands knew it was time for dinner. No rags waved as I headed downtown, but delicious food, gorgeous art, beautiful buildings, and fascinating local characters awaited. As I would soon discover, there’s no place in the world quite like Mineral Point, Wisconsin.
