Boy, I wish I was only 30 miles from her home! I would be there a lot if I was! Of course, I drive 27 miles one way for my job, so 3 more doesn't seem bad at all! HeeHee

scratchead Well, it is nice being so close, but at $14.00 each visit, it doesn't fit into my budget.  I have found that they sell annual 'support' memberships at different levels, so I might get one of those.  If I go at least 4 times, it will have paid for itself.

Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum


'Progress continues on "Laura's Pathway", a trail linking the Historic Farmhouse to the Rock House. The start of the trail near the Farmhouse is shown here. The Japanese Maple was planted by Rose Wilder Lane. As long as the weather cooperates, paving should begin soon!'

Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum

'There is one more week for travelers-- or residents of the Chicago area-- to see the Laura Ingalls Wilder Exhibit at the American Writers Museum on Michigan Avenue in Chicago. This exhibit includes the original penciled manuscript of The Long Winter, which Laura was writing exactly 80 years ago. Where? In the farmhouse on Rocky Ridge Farm, of course.
The report is that the eight-month Wilder exhibit has been a great success for this new museum honoring the greatest American writers.'

Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum:


Fifty years ago, Rose Wilder Lane died in her Danbury, CT home at age 81. She had stopped there briefly, prior to embarking on a European trip. Rose spent over 50 years in the writing profession, her greatest fame during the 1920s and '30s. Several of her books remain in print. After her death, it became common knowledge that she mentored her mother in the creation, publishing, and promotion of the Little House series. A true family project, just as survival was for the Ingalls and Wilder clans. Many artifacts from Rose's creative life were donated to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Home Association by her heir Roger Mac Bride. Her passing on October 30, 1968, marked the end of the family lines of Charles and Caroline Ingalls and of Almanzo and Laura Wilder.

Blue I had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful and dedicated woman when the LIW Museum had it's Grand Opening of the new museum a few years back.  She also can be seen on several PBS documentaries about living in the Ozarks and the history of Laura and Almanzo. Such a loss to the Mansfield community and especially the LIW Home Association.


Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum:


It is with a heavy heart that the Laura Ingalls Wilder Home Association announces the passing of our longtime Director and Board Member, Mrs. Jean C. Coday.
Mrs. Coday began her volunteer service to the Wilder Association in 1960, serving as a Board Member. Later, in 1993, she would become President of the Board, following the passing of her husband- Joseph D. Coday. In the same year, she would become the Director of the Historic Home and Museum, following the passing of Connie Tidwell.
Mrs. Coday has faithfully worked to preserve the legacy of the Wilder family and her preservation efforts are visible throughout Rocky Ridge Farm.
Generations of Wilder fans will be indebted to her vision, heartfelt commitment, and generosity.
Memorial contributions to honor her memory can be made by visiting:
