AAA Editor Notes
Ingalls Homestead, .5 mi. e. on US 14, then .5 mi. s. to 20812 Homestead Rd., is the quarter-section homesteaded by Charles P. Ingalls in 1880. The land inspired many “Little House” stories written by his daughter Laura Ingalls Wilder. The site encompasses native prairie grasses and a living-history farm that gives visitors a glimpse of what prairie homestead life entailed. Also offered are covered wagon rides, hands-on pioneering activities and an 1880s school session.
