Last year I 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. I got Pepin and Independence done and then I got distracted with other projects and topics. I still think it’s a good idea so I’m going to pick up where I left off.
These posts are all about Walnut Grove, Minnesota, on the banks of Plum Creek. Walnut Grove is one of the smaller Laura homesite towns, but they still have multiple sites, the museum, the dugout site, Pa’s church bell, and the pageant among others. Be aware you can came in town, but there is no motel there.
