We are a non-profit historical site/ museum dedicated to preserving the homestead of Laura Ingalls Wilder i13 miles Southwest of Independence, Kansas.  Laura Ingalls Wilder is the writer of the iconic and cherished Little House on the Prairie books, loved by all.  We have been in operation since 1977, although the sight was discovered in 1969. Our goals is to share with our visitors the majestic Kansas prairie that inspired Laura Ingalls Wilder when living here as a young girl, and to continue to promote and encourage children's literacy through the Little House books series. All proceeds benefit the site and its continued operation and up-keep.  Our site is the birth place of baby Carrie, Laura's sister, and also includes an one room school house from 1872, a one room post office from the same time period, and a replica log cabin like the one the Ingalls lived in during their time in Kansas.  Join us on the second Saturday ever June for Prairie Days and celebrate the spirit of pioneer life! Please feel free to contact us, we would love to hear from you.
