The Mineral Point Historical Society (MPHS) is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the unique history of Mineral Point, located in the Driftless Area of southwest Wisconsin. Our headquarters is the beautiful 19th century Italianate mansion and grounds known as Orchard Lawn.

We offer tours of this estate, sponsor events and programs for our community throughout the year and rent our facilities for private events, especially weddings.

MPHS is an important resource for historians, genealogists and anyone interested in the past, present or future of Mineral Point and the surrounding area. Our organization accepts not one penny of local, state or federal tax money – instead we operate and thrive because of the generosity and commitment of our friends, members and volunteers.
