Day 2: Little Town on the Prairie, The Laura Ingall's Wilder Homestead

Today we drove 6 hours and arrived at the Ingall's Homestead around 2:00pm. We spent 2 hours there. It was totally amazing to me, standing there on the 160 acres that the Ingall's family actually lived and farmed over 200 years ago. The buildings were not the originals of the Ingall's family, but they were original buildings from the area that resembled what the Ingall's family lived in over the years that Laura was growing up. Laura Ingalls Wilder Jayme is her biggest fan. This is a view of…

Robert Boast, a friend of Charles Ingalls;  Boast and his new bride Ella "Ellie" arrived in De Smet in the winter of 1879-80 when the Ingalls family was living in the Surveyor's house. Mrs. Boast suffered from ill health and the beloved couple never had children, but their home became a popular gathering place for the young people of De Smet.

The writing desk where Laura Ingalls Wilder penned many of the Little House books still sits in the Rocky Ridge Farm house.

Information

Ma's China Shepheress: This figurine was found among Carrie's things in Keystone, SD. The foot had been broken and mended with sealing wax, evidence that it had been cherished. Later, William Anderson found a letter that Laura had written to some school children. In it she wrote, "Carrie has the little shepherdess." We feel confident that this is the figure that the family had treasured.
