Shake Rag Alley is located in the rolling hills of southwestern Wisconsin in the historic Cornish mining town of Mineral Point. Here you will find a spirit of preservation and creativity and residents who have been described as "pathologically friendly." The city is filled with artists and studio-galleries and is a destination for tourists for both its artists and its historic sites and architecture. Mineral Point has many styles of lodging, from standard motels to quaint B&Bs and inns. Restaurants range from cozy diners to fine dining.
