Mineral Point - USA

Mineral Point - Wisconsin







The village of 2,700 in southwest Wisconsin was a boomtown when Milwaukee was a few mud streets, and it nearly became the state capital.

After lead mining ended, its glowing limestone buildings remained, and in 1971, it became the first Wisconsin city listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Its residents were heavily involved in historic preservation and the arts long before anyone had heard the phrase "economic stimulus." It's charming but not cloying, cute but not contrived — in other words, the real deal.




Down High Street in Mineral Point.

This was originally in the architecture section. Why was it moved to the skyline section?
