  • If you love the Laura Ingalls Wilder books, you will love this place! Tours are $15 per person. This is the original surveyor's house! A very exciting experience.
  • This site has a school Laura taught in and one she attended. It also has a prairie schooner. I did not realize they were so small! There is a shop with lots of period items. All this was free to see except inside the one school. For a price above our family's budget, you could have a tour guide explain lots of things and see inside the one school and a house she lived in. For a price you could also do hands on activities. We were only disappointed that the prices were not family friendly.
