Mineral Point, WI

Thanks to an invitation from our friends Daniel and Alan (and their faithful hound Rosie), we were able to get a guided tour of this off-the-beaten track village and artists' colony for a weekend.  We stayed at a B&B that was a three minute walk from Daniel and Alan's house, and we got to see all the sights.

Mineral Point used to be a mining town, and many of the old Cornish buildings made of limestone that were built during its heyday in the 1800s are still standing. Many even occupied and serve as artist studios, stores, restaurants, hotels, etc.  I'll be creating posts about our doings, including photos over the next couple days.
