Laura Ingalls Wilder Park And Museum

The Laura Ingalls Wilder Park and Museum contains a number of places that informed her life and inspired her books. Visitors can see the places where Laura Ingalls Wilder grew and developed her love of books and words - where stories flowed from the tombstones of Burr Oak pioneers in the cemetery where Laura and her friend Alice found solace in the quiet of summer afternoons on the hill by the Advent Church. Guests can experience the view from the hotel that Pa managed while the Ingalls family lived and worked here -- the view of Silver Creek that still flows as it did when the Ingalls girls waded in it.

We hope you enjoy our work.
