Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home

Another RVing family posted that they were heading toward Mansfield, Missouri and the Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and we wanted to see both badly, so we decided (in a matter of minutes) to take a road trip!  We've missed Kimber, Neva, and Laney, so it was GREAT to catch up with them.  We also love everything about Little House on the Prairie, and have visited all of the sites except for this one, so it was great to finally see it too.  We loved Walnut Grove MN and De Smet SD.
This museum had Pa's fiddle.  PA'S FIDDLE PEOPLE!  And Laura's treasured china and so many of the items we've read so much about.  This is the farm she and Almanzo lived on and where she wrote most of her books.  This was luxury compared to the homes she wrote about as she was growing up. No pictures were allowed inside the house or museum, so you'll have to plan a trip to Mansfield! 
What a great view she had.  
 And best of all, we got to share it with friends. 
Lizzy was so happy to see Laney again.
