Awesome Place to stop & see where Laura Ingalls Wilder as well as her Husband, Almanzo, and her Daughter, Rose, are buried deep in the Heart of the Ozark Mountains!

After stopping by the Laura Ingalls Wilder home and museum, you can pay your respects at the cemetery. Like the other reviews note, nothing fancy, but it's not to pay tribute to her.

Graves were in the middle so hard to access. Amazing to see how long Laura lived and to think of the changes she saw in her lifetime.

This is just another piece of history to stop and see if you are here to visit the museum and the other things related to Laura Ingalls Wilder.

There isn't much to this, but it is worth a quick look. The graves are very conveniently marked, so no searching the whole cemetery. Bring your mementoes as many people leave items at the graves.

If you are visiting Laura Ingalls Wilder's home the cemetery is very close. It is easy to find off of main street Mansfield. It is small and the Wilder graves are easy to find with markers pointing the way. They are not pretentious stones at all but what you would expect her to have.

After visiting Laura's homes it is only a short drive to the cemetery and graves of Laura and Almonzo are clearly marked with signs so they are easy to find. It was cool to see people have left pencils, pens and buttons on her stone. The whole cemetery is well kept.

Mansfield is a very small town, and there is a sign for the cemetery. You can also ask the locals for directions. Everyone we met was friendly and helpful. Once at the cemetery, there is a sign pointing to the area of the Wilder graves. I was surprised and delighted to see that fans leave stones, pennies, and pens/pencils on... More
