I was at this wonderful event and am here to encourage any fan of Laura and Almanzo to schedule a trip to this and any of the homesites that bear their name. It will make the stories come alive next time you read the books.
This was a very exciting day. The new brightly red painted schoolhouse was dedicated to Laura Ingalls Wilder, Eliza Jane Wilder and all teachers. Lucy Lee Flippin and Dean Butler were on hand to help in the ribbon cutting and tree planting ceremonies. Biographer William Anderson was Master of Ceremonies.
This was my first time to the Wilder farm and I thoroughly enjoyed touring the home and barns that are lovingly restored to match the descriptions of Farmer Boy. 2000 people attended this special day.
