Our 19th Century buildings are only part of the charm of
Mineral Point. We respect our heritage, but we're busy with today's world, too. And all with a friendly, outgoing spirit.
It's "AGRICULTURE, ART, ARCHITECTURE, and AMBIENCE."
Oh, and we're AUTHENTIC, too.
THE TIMES OF MINERAL POINT is a homegrown effort to
capture, in words and images, the good life in our hillside home in Driftless Wisconsin.
Oh, all right, we comment on our Crazy World, too.
