Summer 2009 Travels travel blog

From the flyer

A log cabin - supposedly like the one the Ingalls lived in.

Sunny Side School - looks almost like the 1 room school I...

Laura Ingalls Wilder homesteaded in South Dakota at the same time my grandfather did. But before they went to SD, the Ingalls family homesteaded in Kansas. Her book, Little House on the Prairie, tells about this adventure. They would have stayed there but there was some problem with their claim.

Anyway, as we left South Haven, KS, this morning, I noticed the Historic Site on the map. We were going right past it and I told Ron if the road wasn’t bad – I would like to stop. So we did.

Not a lot there as you can see from the pictures. But, the lady was nice and I got a pin for my map quilt. It was a pretty drive and I’m glad we stopped.
