You Are Invited To A Party For Laura Ingalls Wilder

The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame (NCMHOF) will be celebrating the 150th birthday of Laura Ingalls Wilder on Saturday, February 25th, 2017.


Laura was inducted into the Hall of Fame way back in 1984. It was her experiences growing up on the frontier and her pioneering spirit that garnered her the nomination.


Also inducted that same year were Caroline Quiner Ingalls, Laura’s “Ma”.


Laura’s sisters, including Mary Amelia Ingalls


Carrie Ingalls Swanzey


…and Grace Ingalls Dow were also nominee’s.


As well as Laura’s daughter, Rose Wilder Lane.


The NCMHOF is partnering with the Log Cabin Village Museum to present this special day. It will be a wonderful event for children too as pioneer themed crafts and games as well as butter making demonstrations are planned.

I will also be on hand with my family sharing pioneer era artifacts and reproductions as well as photos of the Ingalls family. I’ll talk about all things Laura, enjoy storytime and have a question and answer session.

The majority of the volunteers will be dressed in historic costume and attendees are encouraged to dress up as well.

Makes me wish I lived in Texas! This sounds like a wonderful celebration of a life who modeled such a wonderful example of how to live life in simplicity and be content.

I thought of you last night as I attended a birthday party for Laura. I live just miles from DeSmet, so we are pretty darn proud of our Laura.
