The main street of Mineral Point makes one feel that he/she has been transported back to Cornwall, England.  A Cornish festival is a major summer event.

 

The varied architecture of Mineral Point’s buildings has been well preserved.

The Mineral Point Opera House, built during the zinc boom of the early 20th century, remains a venue for community events.

 

A view down a side street reveals an historic church and mansions from the heyday of lead and zinc mining.

 

This impressive restored limestone building has been repurposed as the Gray Dog Deli.
