While there are many fun things to do in Missouri, one option is to take a literary journey through Laura Ingalls Wilder life at the Laura Ingalls Wilder Home and Museum in Mansfield, Missouri. Fans of the “Little House on the Prairie” books come from near and far to visit Rocky Ridge Farm, the farm that Laura shared with her husband Almanzo. This home-turned-museum has not been restored and has been virtually untouched over the years, meaning you can walk through her home and really feel like you are taking a literary journey through her life. This is where she wrote the manuscripts that would become her famous books loved by millions worldwide. As you tour her home, you can explore the original manuscripts, furniture and other artifacts to gain insight into this remarkable pioneer author. Truly a must-see for any Laura Ingalls Wilder fan or just about anyone interested in frontier life.
