  • It was interesting and sad all at the same time. We had passed this to enter the National Park and my wife's friend protest that she, as a big fan of Little House on the Prairie wanted to see this...

  • This was a fun visit. Nice to see how people lived. Visited June 2021.
  • We stopped to see this place shortly after leaving the Badlands National Park. This place is so authentic that you can really see how the early settlers Ed & Alice Brown lived on their 160 acre claim. The sod dugout house they built in 1909 with sod brick walls and grass roof is a sight to behold and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Besides the house there are other interesting things to see such as all the albino prairie dogs. I loved it. I also thought the lady at the counter was not very inviting!
