Laura and Almanzo at their Stone House with their dog, Nero. In this picture, Laura is about 65 and Almanzo is about 75.

Did you know that Laura Ingalls Wilder was only 4'11", and Almanzo was only5'4"! The counters in their home were therefore lower than usual to accommodate the couple's height.

I have stood there as well and have been in the house that Almanzo built for them and the downsized kitchen he made just for his petite wife, Laura. I even heard or read somewhere that Laura stood just between Caroline's and Charles' height....so I figure they were all of short stature.

I need to get back over there, just down the road from me....
yes

I've already seen it, but not in this big size and so clear...They were really short, then! Smile Laura was lovely. She seemed a little doll, even when she was an old lady.

She didn't remain long at the Stone HOuse, as soon as Rose returned to Connecticut, Laura and Almanzo move again to their old house. "We were homesick" - she explained. Smile

Walking through the stone house I didn't "feel" Laura there as I did in the house she and Almonzo built. Although, the lot it is on is beautiful! I'll have to find the pictures I took while there.
Its such a fuzzy feeling to know you've stood where Laura has and looked at the same views . loveheart

What a great experience, Gin...I think that the love we feel while we are living in thios world, always remains, and other persons can occasionnally feel it as well. Smile

What a great thing to being able to be in the same places where Laura lived, and see the same landscapes she saw every day! Cloud 9

So happy for those of you who actually visited the stone house! Some day it'll be my turn, hopefully. :)

I'm wondering, has Laura ever written anything about how clothing styles changed from her childhood to adulthood? I know she had more exciting things to write about, but seeing her in a short-sleeve dress makes me go "wow", considering the long dresses and petticoats they wore in the 1880s.

Laura Ingalls was a very modern woman, and she was very stylish too. She wrote a lot of article et the "Missouri Ruralist" about how things were changing from her childhood to adulthood, but I don't know if she ever wrote about clothes...Anyone? scratchead
