Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum
Ingalls’ House in the Big Woods
Laura Ingalls Wilder’s story began in 1867, when she was born in a little log cabin seven miles northwest of Pepin, Wisconsin. Her Pepin story is depicted in the first book of her series, Little House in the Big Woods.
Laura lived as a little girl with her Pa and Ma and her sister Mary, and later, her baby sister Carrie. Laura also wrote of their dog, Jack, and their cat, Black Susan, who lived with them.
Pioneer life in the Big Woods of Wisconsin was often difficult for the Ingalls family. Pa hunted and trapped and grew all the food for his family. Ma made her own butter, cheese, and maple syrup, and sewed the family’s clothes. But Laura and her family shared many happy experiences as they lived snugly in their little log cabin in the woods.
Look for Casper, who makes this an authentic Cat's Meow hanging out with Black Susan and Jack.
