A Little House History
Author Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 in the wooded bluffs above Pepin, Wisconsin. The humble log cabin was the setting for Little House in the Big Woods, the first in her series of beloved stories featuring the adventures of Laura & her family as they traveled the west when she & America were young together. These classic works of children's literature have been translated into more than forty languages worldwide. Readers of all ages still enjoy Laura’s tales of a family’s simple joy & elemental struggle as they work together to build a life on the frontier.
A reconstruction of the Little House in the Big Woods, built on land owned by Charles & Caroline Ingalls (Pa & Ma) is located seven miles north of Pepin on County Road CC.
The Village of Pepin is home to a historical museum (open Mid-May thru Mid-Oct) which features artifacts from Laura’s time. Pepin, Wisconsin also marks the starting point of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Highway, which links Laura sites across the Midwestern US.
