Laura Ingalls Wilder House and Museum
Welcome to the historic Laura Ingalls Wilder House and Museum, an iconic literature and history hotspot located in Mansfield, Mo, just 45 minutes from Springfield. This is the spot ‘Where the Little House Books were Written’, the spot oftentimes also referred to as Rocky Ridge Farm.
Laura Ingalls Wilder (and her family) lived on this property from 1896 until her death in 1951, the American Craftsman home built by Almanzo Wilder himself. The history and heritage held in this 9.9 acres are truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience to have, over 30,000 yearly guests agreeing. This is known as the ‘most comprehensive collection of Ingalls/Wilder memorabilia in the world’, an excellent literary-based tour stop your group will most certainly enjoy.
Tour the home itself and see Laura’s study, writing desk, and day to day life memorabilia throughout. Outside you can tour the other homes on the site, the Ingalls/Rose Wilder Lane Museum, Laura’s Vegetable Garden, and the Rocky Ridge Bookstore.
