Mineral Point Railroad Depot Museum. Built by Cornish stonemasons in 1856 of locally limestone, the Mineral Point Depot is one of few surviving pre-Civil War depots in the nation. It is the oldest surviving depot in Wisconsin and the oldest extant structure of the Milwaukee Road. Today it is an award winning museum including a new HO-scale model railroad that replicates the rail yard during its heyday circa 1917. Tours May – October.
Orchard Lawn/The Gundry House. Built in 1868, Orchard Lawn was home for three generations of the Gundry family. The stately house and its surrounding grounds reflect the classic, pastoral image of the Italianate style. A remarkable survivor, Orchard Lawn has escaped the fate of many grand old homes whose interiors have been divided into apartments or remuddled beyond recognition. Tours are available June – Early September. For scheduling information, contact Manager, Ainsley Anderson, (608) 334-1064 or OrchardLawn@gmail.com.
