Almanzo Wilder Home

The Almanzo Wilder Home is the birthplace and childhood farm home of Almanzo Wilder, husband of the famous children’s' author Laura Ingalls Wilder. Her book Farmer Boy is set at this site. The site is set during the years the Wilder family would have lived there, from 1857-1875.

The farm offers tours and the Wilder Farm School Tour Program, in which students tour the house, barn, and grounds. The tour assumes the students have read Farmer Boy and is geared towards an older elementary school level.
