Today’s travels took us along the eastern shore of Lake Pepin, the largest naturally occurring lake along the course of the Mississippi River and into the town of Pepin, Wisconsin to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum which gave a look at what life was like in Pepin when the Ingalls family lived here in the Nineteenth Century. Perhaps more particular to the personal history of the author of the Little House books is a nicely done reproduction of the log cabin the family lived in when she was born in 1867. It sits on a portion of the land owned by her father but is no longer surrounded by big woods. It’s a small house but it looked pretty roomy to the two of us who currently hang our hats in a T@B!
