Pepin, Wisconsin and Laura Ingalls Wilder

A couple weeks ago we went to Pepin, Wisconsin to visit Laura Ingalls Wilder’s birth place.  First, we visited the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum. In one of the rooms there was a sign telling about her life. At the bottom there was a quote that I really like : ” The Little House books are stories of long ago… but the real things haven’t changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures, and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.” -Laura Ingalls Wilder.

After we finished looking around in the museum we went to the log cabin built on the land they own at the time of her birth. I thought it was pretty big. I had a good time looking around the museum and the cabin.  This was the setting for the book Little House in the Big Woods.  I cant wait to o to another Laura Ingalls Wilder site.
