I learned a lot about this missing time of Laura's life. I didn't know this was where Grace was born. The visitor center is in an old bank across the street. I followed a group of school kids which was a lot of fun. The...More
Burr Oak is going to be way out of the way for most travelers, but for Laura Ingalls Wilder lovers, it's an interesting stop. We have been to all the Ingalls sites. This is one of the smallest sites and the one time of her...More

I missed the last tour, but it was fun to see the hotel and the person at the shop gave me a lot of information on the town and museum. The tour starts in a former bank building that was robbed in the 1930s.

Great tour about the part of Laura's childhood she didn't write about, but stayed tuned...her autobiography is being released in August of 2013. Also interesting opportunity to see what a typical "hotel" was like during prairie times. The nearby store/restaurant was not open when we...More
