Potholder that reads "Lefse is beautiful"Schubert's is the community meeting spot for Mt. Horeb. Every morning, a group has coffee there. They tell stories, mostly about recent events. The story going around lately is about a deer disease law suit. They also tell stories about how Mount Horeb used to be a small town, and as it got bigger, the government wanted to put in subdivisions. But the people of Mt. Horeb felt they should keep some areas the same. (There are 6000 people now, but 20 years ago there were only 1800.)--Zoë

At the restaurant, we got pastries. Very good ones. We got to pick out of a selection of them. I got a Long John with frosting and sprinkles on top. Gabby got a chocolate cupcake with loads of frosting. They also gave us The recipebook that is used for the creations of the restaurantNorwegian pastries called rosettes - dough that is shaped and then deep fried and sprinkled with powdered or brown sugar. Mmmmmm!

The guy who gave us pastries was a 4th grade teacher long ago (well, not so long ago). So next time you are in Mount Horeb, stop at Schuberts!--Emma

When we went into the kitchen, we were greeted with a warm aroma of some unknown delicacy.-- EmilySeveral residents of Mt. Horeb came to talk to the kids about their community

Mount Horeb is a really clean town. The people are really polite and friendly. There's good industry, antique shops and really good places to eat. You will remember a lot of people who live in Mount Horeb, because it is a really small town.--Nick
