Almanzo Wilder, who later married author Laura Ingalls famous for her Little House Book series, spent his childhood on this homestead. The story line for Farmer Boy, the second in the series, was based on Wilder's memories of life on the farm in 1866 as a nine-year-old boy. The Greek Revival house, circa 1840, has been restored and furnished in a historically accurate manner. A large barn has been completely rebuilt and site restoration continues. Gift Shop. Special Events: Civil War reenactment.
