Where are we going today?

Enjoy learning the history of the Ingalls family in Walnut Grove at the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum and Gift Store. The museum's collections are housed in a series of interesting buildings, including an 1898 depot, a chapel, an onion-domed house, dugout display, little red schoolhouse, early settler home, and covered wagon display. Also on display are memorabilia from visits by the stars from the "Little House on the Prairie" TV series.

    In many ways, this is a typical pioneer history museum, complete with a sod house, covered wagon, etc. What's different about it is that it contains information specific to Laura Ingalls Wilder and the Little House on the Prairie television series. A dedicated fan would enjoy stopping here.

    Be sure to visit the Wilder Homesite just north of town on County Road 5. Here you can stand "on the banks of Plum Creek" near the clearly marked spot where the Ingalls family dugout was located. Unfortunately, all other traces of the Ingalls family's stay here...Read More

Be sure to visit the Wilder Homesite just north of town on County Road 5. Here you can stand "on the banks of Plum Creek" near the clearly marked spot where the Ingalls family dugout was located. Unfortunately, all other traces of the Ingalls family's stay here have vanished with time. The current farmhouse was built around 1900, long after the Ingalls family had moved away. Please note that the land is privately held--visitors are welcome but must pay $4 per vehicle.

I would recommend lunch at Nellie's Cafe in Walnut Grove.
