Sod House on the Prairie is 1 mi. e. of jct. US 71 and US 14, then .3 mi. s. to 12598 Magnolia Ave. Wildflowers and prairie grass cover this 10-acre site, where two sod houses re-create pioneer life in the 1880s. The “dugout” and “soddy” represent both the rich and the poor settler and give an indication of the lifestyle of author Laura Ingalls Wilder and her family, who lived nearby.
