Photographs

MP 1864

The Archives has an extensive collection of photographs of commercial buildings, homes, and residents of Mineral Point, dating from the mid-1860s. A sampling of our collection is hosted by Recollection Wisconsin, and available online.

Much, but nowhere near all, of the collection has been digitized. To enquire about a photograph of a specific person, building, or location, email us at mparchive@swls.org. To view originals or to search for a particular image, please visit the Archives. We are open on Thursdays from noon until 8:00 and on Saturdays from 10:00 until 4:00.

The Archives also holds the index to the photograph collections of the Mineral Point Historical Society, including images in the glass plate negative collection of the 1880s and the Phil Lewis collection of the 1970s. A sampling of the Mineral Point Historical Society’s collection is also available online through Recollection Wisconsin.
