Giveaway: Laura Ingalls Wilder Mini Prints and More

In 1894, Almanzo, Laura, and Rose Wilder moved to Mansfield, Missouri. With a one-hundred-dollar bill as a down payment, they bought 40 acres of land and a small cabin. They named it Rocky Ridge Farm. (You can read why Laura Ingalls Wilder and her family moved to Missouri here.) 

Be sure to read to the end of this blog post for the giveaway!
Today Rocky Ridge is home to The Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum in Mansfield, Missouri. It was Laura and Almanzo's home for 63 years. The Wilders spent 17 years building their farmhouse where the Little House series would eventually be written. The home stands today just as Laura left it in February 1957 when she died.
