This was another stop I made visiting the Little House on The Prairie Homesteads. Also stopped in The original home of Pa and Ma. That was also awesome

It was fun to see and go there but it was not some where you would go to visit more then once. I personally thought they could of had more information for you to take with you like hand outs.

My daughter thought it was really neat to see one of the places Laura Ingalls Wilder lived as described in the books. It's a neat museum, worth taking the time to see if you're in the area or passing through.

Stopped here on our road trip through the southern states because we have visited pretty much every other Little House site. It is such a quaint little place! There is a little schoolhouse, post office, and a replica of the cabin that Pa built. There is also a white farmhouse on the property where you can sit on the rocking... More

The site is located about 12 southwest of Independence, KS (well placed brown and white historic signs mark where to turn) and consists of a one room furnished cabin, a well believed to have been dug by Pa Ingalls, a 19th century school house (1872-1947), and a 19th century post office (1885-1977). The fee is $3 for adults and $1... More

My then 8-year-old daughter and I visited the Little House on the Prairie Museum homesite in October 2014. We had visited the northern Laura Ingalls Wilder homesites in the summer. We enjoyed seeing this site, the location where the book, “Little House on the Prairie,” took place. At this site, you pay the admission fee (a very low $3 for... More

Im from Independence and have always taken friends here when we are travelling through. It is very well done and maintained. A few minutes outside of town but its a nice short drive. I cant wait to take my son back.

I was driving with a colleague to dinner in Independence KS when we saw the signs for this site. We asked about it at dinner and got the story so we stopped on the way back south. The site was closed for the day but there was a man working and he invited us to look around. We paid the... More

The cabin is a replica, but it is on the Ingalls homestead. This is not actually in Independence, but south. Watch for the signs because the site is not on the secondary road, but requires taking a tertiary road. The day I was there the museum was closed; however, the owners left a note on the gate inviting visitors to... More
