Burr Oak is a small unincorporated community in Winneshiek County, Iowa, United States, very close to the Minnesota state line. Burr Oak is a census-designated place and the population was 166 in the 2010 census.HistoryBurr Oak was platted in 1855.The village is known as one of the former homes of Laura Ingalls Wilder (author of the Little House on the Prairie books) (1876–1877). This is where Grace Ingalls, the youngest of the Ingalls children, was born in 1877. There is a Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum in the local Masters Hotel. Burr Oak is the missing link in the Little House series, as Laura never published a book about her stay there (although Old Town in the Green Groves book by Cynthia Rylant describes this missing year).DemographicsAs of the census of 2010, there were 166 people, 70 households, and 43 families residing in the town. The population density was 240.6 people per square mile (92.9/km²). There were 80 housing units at an average density of 115.9 per square mile (44.8/km²). The racial makeup of the town was 97.0% White, 0.6% Asian, and 2.4% from other races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 2.4% of the population.
