“journey into the visual memories of the homestead days”

The Prairie Homestead, an original sod home of Mr. & Mrs. Ed Brown, was built in 1909. It is typical of the homes and outbuildings that pioneers built.This home is one of the last remaining original sod homes intact today. These pioneers played a very important part in settling the Great Plains. Take a glimpse back in time at how life was for early pioneers by taking the interpretive walking tour.Watch our informative movie and then dress in Early Pioneer attire (if you want), before heading out to explore the old out buildings and sod house.  You will feel like you stepped off the pages of “Little House on the Prairie”.

So much fun, definitely dress up and take pics! Basically $5 per person over 5 years old, under 5 is free I believe.

I grew up reading Little House on the Prairie, and though this house is not related to that. It was awesome to see this little home. So many original items are still inside the home. And it's wild to imagine homesteading in this way. There are lots of prairie dogs living it up on the protected land, and they always make for a good show.

We stopped here with all the kids.. and they really enjoyed it! There is an informational pamphlet (free with admission) as well as an area for dressing up in costume. Animals roam freely, and you can tour the buildings/grounds at your own pace. Very fun!

Can't believe I didn't know this existed! Intact home with original furnishings. Just amazing how hard it was to live back then, and this family made it look easy!

If you go be sure to spend the extra time and DRESS UP IN COSTUME, it's part of the cost of admission!
