Nice chance to see the gravesites for the Wilder's and their daughter. Many other poignant gravesites of children and babies who died near the turn of the century as well, reminding you of the realities of life 100 years ago.

The cemetery is just a short distance into town from Laura Ingalls Wilder's Home and Museum. There is a map on the back of your tickets if you stop by the museum first. Once you arrive at the small town cemetery, there are nice, clearly marked signs to show you to Laura Wilder's grave. Her husband and daughter are also... More

We were flying blind when we came into Mansfield looking for the Laura Ingalls Wilder home and ended up driving by this little cemetery on the hill. After we finished our tour of the house and museum, we decided to go back to the cemetery and find their graves. Seemed like the right thing to do to show our respect... More

Well taken care of and peaceful. It's easy to find the grave sites as well as the cemetery. A part of Laura lore.

Interesting to see the graves of the Laura and her family. Definitely worth it while there. I wouldn't take young children there.

The cemetery is peaceful and well maintain. The graves of Laura and her family are well marked. You can see them easily from your car, but I chose to walk over to them and visit closer. Unlike another reviewer, we did not have any difficulty locating the actual cemetery--there was an easily seen sign.

A relatively small, historic cemetery. The LIW graves are well signed but are easy to recognizing by the way they standout, even if you remain in your car and just drive through for a quick look. Very well maintained and easy to find - very near downtown Mansfield.

You'll see lots of new and old headstones at the Mansfield Cemetery. Follow the signs on the corners if you want to go directly to the Laura Ingalls Wilder grave.

It is hard to rate a cemetery but this definitely worth a visit if you are a Laura Ingalls Wilder fan. Laura, Almanzo and Rose Wilder's graves are well marked and maintained. I said a little "thank you" to Laura as I stood by her grave for giving me such reading pleasure with her Little House on the Prairie book... More
