Rocky Ridge: “Where the Little House Books Were Written”

John and Donna  anxiously anticipated their visit to Rocky Ridge, Laura Ingalls Wilder’s historic home where she wrote the Little House series. Laura’s museum houses artifacts that help paint a picture of her ordinary life and extraordinary accomplishments. In case you were wondering,  Pa’s fiddle is on display

While we toured her farm house, John marveled at her contributions to children’s literature. After all, she won five Newbery Honors.  Donna was in fan girl mode, having read every Little House book multiple times and having watched every episode of Little House on the Prairie. As a young girl, she wished she lived on the prairie and had a husband like “Manly.”
