Mount Horeb is a charming little village about 20 minutes from Madison. At first glance we may not look too different from any other small town, but we have so much packed into such a small space and so many events throughout the year you may be pleasantly surprised.
For people who like being outdoors: Stewart Lake, Tyrol Basin, Cave of the Mounds, Brigham County Park, Military Ridge Trail and many smaller parks within the village.
For people who like shopping: Duluth Trading Company's flagship store, Open House Imports, Moonhill Mercantile, First Street Antiques, Walter's, Olsen's Christmas House, Marah's Elegant Bridal, Prairie Bookstore, Bergey Jewelry, Isaacs Antiques, all independently owned with the personal service you would expect in a small town. Oh, I almost forgot, Sjölinds Chocolate House. We have a great collection of others peoples chocolate as well as our own.
For people who like to craft as well as shop for crafts: Cat and Crow (an amazing yarn store), the Busy Bee for quilters, remakethat for people who take the old and make it new again, Witchery Stitchery for needle crafters and Artisan Woods is both a gallery and store for woodcrafters extrodiare.
Finally for people who love art, Mount Horeb is packed with galleries. The newly opened Opera House, Bruce Taylor, Peg Ginsberg, Peggy Flora Zalucha, Mikel Kelly, Selah Vie, Bruce Fortney of Art on Third, and Sommer House Arts are just some of the galleries. Being that they are all galleries that are run by the artists themselves it is best to call or email ahead to find out their hours.
I am sure that I have forgotten plenty of places around town so please check out our Chamber website for a more complete list, trollyway.com.
