Join us this September 19th for our annual celebration commemorating Laura Ingalls Wilder, America’s favorite pioneer girl, and her cherished Little House books. We are still in the planning stages. Please check back and we will update as all is finalized. We will be having our 2nd Annual Fiddle Contest on Wilder Day. It will be a great day to enjoy fiddle music on the property as well as hearing Pa’s Fiddle played.  Go to Calendar of Events for details.

Wilder Days is an annual event that is held by the community of Mansfield, Missouri to remember and recognize one of their favorite and very famous residents,the late Laura Ingalls Wilder.  You can learn more about why we take time to acknowledge and appreciate Laura at Laura’s Story Laura enjoyed living and working on their farm in the Mansfield community and spent many hours writing her childhood experiences of pioneer life in this country which became the favorite Little House books that children love today in many countries besides our own.

Venders and volunteers from the community gather to show midwestern hospitality to visitors during the celebration…hospitality that is common here all through the year.
