The Laura Ingalls Wilder House, also known as the Rocky Ridge Farm, was the home of the popular writer Laura Ingalls Wilder and her family from 1896 to 1957. It was the very place she penned her popular Little House series, catapulting her to popularity and her family to the middle class society.
The Rocky Ridge farm started as a 40-acre stony hillside. The Wilder couple then made it into a 200 acre poultry and dairy farm with an apple orchard. After transforming the land into a thriving farm property, Laura Ingalls Wilder then took on writing, first as a local paper columnist and essayist, and later on as an author.
Sadly, the Laura Ingalls Wilder House and Museum isn?t the 200 acre Rocky Ridge Farm anymore. Due to the depression in the 1930s, the Wilders had to sell most of their properties, so what remains now is the farmhouse that was completed in 1912.
