The historic home of the famous pioneer girl and author Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Laura Ingalls Wilder is a famous pioneer girl and beloved author. The historic farmhouse of Rocky Ridge is the home of Laura Ingalls Wilder, Almonzo Wilder, and their daughter Rose Wilder. Rocky Ridge Farmhouse is the place that brought her books to life. This location inspired the writing of "The Little House on the Prairie" series and is where she wrote the books. Over 30,000 visitors come here annually. You can tour the historic farmhouse, farm, vegetable garden, the Rose Wilder Lane Museum, and the Rock House.

At this historic location, fans and visitors can also see Pa’s Fiddle, Laura's writing desk, the beloved Little House on the Parrie manuscripts, personal belongings, items used by Laura and the Wilder family, restored furniture, tools, journals, and more. The Rocky Ridge Farm holds the largest collection of Wilder's personal historical artifacts. It is located 45 miles east of Springfield. Those traveling on Highway A need to exit on the second ramp. Turning right off the exit, drive into town, then left at the city square. You will reach your destination just one mile down the road.

The museum and home are available for tours from March 1st to November 15th. Hours are Monday through Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm. You can also stop by on Sunday between 12:30 pm and 5 pm.  Feel free to stop by the gift shop, which is fully stocked with books, gifts, toys, clothing, etc. Nearby places of interest include the Mansfield Town Square and the burial site of the Wilder family.
