Although area folks couldn’t be more proud of their capitol city, many locals wouldn’t trade their small town ways for anything. From summer festivals and county fairs, to 200 miles of trout streams and two major rivers – a move to this area means experiencing a peaceful – yet full life – that just feels right.
It’s no exaggeration to say that the surrounding area is a feast for the eyes – with its rugged rock outcroppings, wildflower meadows and prairies, wooded hillsides, lakes and streams, and rolling farmlands. Just a few highlights include: The House on the Rock, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin, American Players Theatre, and a host of artisan galleries.
The downtown is brimming with resident artists and entrepreneurs. From simple limestone cottages to massive Richardsonian Romanesque architecture, the downtown business and arts district is an impressive collection of early Wisconsin commercial buildings.
This town is full of distinctive shops, antique malls, quaint eateries, and two award–winning vineyards. Rich in Norwegian history, Mount Horeb features several cultural festivals each year and is full of recreational activities.
