Much of Wisconsin's history can be traced to the southwestern corner of the state -- our "Point of Beginnings." The lead miners of the 1820s were among the first European settlers of Wisconsin. The state's 1831 land survey began from a benchmark location near Hazel Green. The first territorial government met at Belmont in 1836. As a measure of the area's rich history, four State Historic Sites (Pendarvis, Stonefield Village, First Capitol and Villa Louis) are located here.
