Fieldschool 2010 Houses
These are some of the houses we'll be working on for this year's fieldschool. They show the range of two-room mining cottages built in Mineral Point during the territorial period (1840s). Generally thought to be built by Cornish stonemasons, these cottages have not been extensively documented despite the regard in which they are held by local residents.
