Mansfield in the Past
Mansfield was home to Almanzo and Laura Ingalls Wilder for the most part of their long lives. Also known as “The Land of the Apple”, the farm the bought had many apple trees, which they carefully tended. Their Rocky Ridge Farm eventually turned into a successful 200 acre dairy and fruit farm.
It was here where Laura wrote numerous articles, and her famous Little House books.
In 1957, Rose donated it to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Home Association.
