New Glarus (Swiss) and Mt. Horeb (Norwegian) are examples of rural towns that reflect the traditions of the original residents’ homeland. An emphasis on historic preservation is evident in logging towns and mining communities that have maintained the flavor of the past. With the greatest number of Native American tribes and bands east of the Mississippi, there are Native American powwows, arts and crafts exhibitions, and museums.
