A Round Up of Articles About Pepin WI

I’ve decided that I need to make it easier to find articles on certain topics and it was time to hold a good old-fashioned round up.

These posts are all about Pepin, Wisconsin on the shores of beautiful Lake Pepin, really a widening of the Mississippi River. Laura Elizabeth Ingalls was born here Feb. 7, 1867. I have been visiting on a regular basis since 1984 and I’ve been the keynote speaker of their Laura Days in Pepin, held each September since 2006.

UPDATE: I was working on my next round up post and in skimming the post about Renee Graef at Hoover I realized it had a lot about the structure of the cabin in Pepin so I’m adding it to the list.
