We are a well traveled family and have seen many areas of the country and numerous attractions and museums. The Laura Ingalls Wilder Home and Museum is one of the best we have seen probably because it is “real and true.” Obviously, we are familiar with Laura Ingalls Wilder as we have every book and “then some” in our house. My Wife and 10 year old daughter have read every book. They loved the museum and house as did I. My 13 year old did too. From my view point, this museum is of national significance and needs much, much more visibility. It is a major historical landmark and is as American as apple pie. It represents the true story of the American dream! We can still learn from the way they lived their lives over 100 years ago (hard work, honesty, persistence through adversity, etc). In Laura’s and Almanzo’s case, they were very successful without the books. But, it was from the books that Laura was successful sharing their story, thus leaving us with a true appreciation of her life.
We need to make sure that this historic home site is preserved for generations to come.
