“The little house of Laura Ingalls”

The Laura Ingalls Wilder House is a historic house museum at 3060 Highway A in Mansfield, Missouri. Also known as Rocky Ridge Farm, it was the home of author Laura Ingalls Wilder from 1896 until her death in 1957. The author of the Little House on the Prairie series, Wilder began writing the series while living there. The house, together with the nearby Rock Cottage on the same property, represents one of the few surviving places where she resided. The house is owned by a local non-profit, and is open to the public for tours. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1991.

interesting place if you read the books. This is where she wrote the books, not the location of the books. Pa's fiddle is here which is very cool.

This was so interesting! The place where Laura wrote the Little House books. Lots of memorabilia in the museum, short 8 minute video of her life and two of the homes she lived in, one of which she and Almanzo built themselves and the other one (the rock house) that Rose had built for them. Beautiful area! The only negative was the price. $14 ea for adults was just a bit steep, in my opinion. But I'm glad I went.

We loved it here! We could do everything there was to do in about 2 hours. We toured both houses & shopped at the gift shop. It was a little pricey, but something my kids will never forget!
