  • This was a short but a fun little stop. It takes you back to some of our pioneer history and lets you see just how far we have come today. There is not an overabundance of things to do, but you can go...  more »

  • Although we were only able to walk around the grounds since it's only open on weekends this time of year, it was still well worth the trip. Although the little cabin is a recreation, it gives you a feeling for how the Ingalls family lived back then. The well that Pa Ingalls dug by hand is still there. And although I know the area has changed a lot throughout the decades, there is still enough open land around to give a sense of the wide open prairie that Laura and Pa so loved. The wind was blowing through the trees, and if I closed my eyes, I could hear Pa laughing as he hoisted two little giggling girls onto his shoulders, and Jack leaping and barking happily. I could see Ma smiling sweetly as she stands at the door with Baby Carrie in her arms, and tantalizing smells from a simple home cooked waft around them. Yes, for this Little House devotee, it was well worth the trip! :)
  • Nice example of historical life. Replica house, authentic post office, school house, farm house and barn. Well maintained.
  • So beautiful brings back the movie scene environment into real life. Loved the stop by.
  • Good stop in southern Kansas!
  • Well worth the trip.
