  • It was a pleasure to tour the only building still standing in which Laura Ingalls Wilder lived as a child. Our tour guide must have been new; though quite nice, he didn't convince us of his facts. Burr Oak was, however, worth seeing!
  • Small museum in 2 locations. The bank building functions as the tour ticket counter and gift shop. The tours are guided. Anna, our guide, was knowledgeable, friendly and interesting. The hotel building is the only Laura Ingalls Wilder residence still in its original site.
