Fans of ‘Little House’ should visit its museum in Kansas
The Ingalls family cabin has one room with a bed, a small kitchen, and nearby, a hand-dug well. Reportedly Charles Ingalls dug the well with their neighbor Mr. Scott. In addition, the grounds hold The Wayside Post Office. It was constructed after the Ingalls left their home but is still a great part of the town’s history.
The museum grounds hold The Sunnyside School, a one-room schoolhouse. It was originally located four miles from the Ingalls’ home but it was moved for the museum. It also features a store where you can purchase Little House on the Prairie memorabilia.
The museum also hosts special events including celebrations for the Ingall’s birthdays, a Prairie Days Festival, and more. Would you be interested in visiting and feeling part of the history of Little House on the Prairie?
