Pepin, Wisconsin in the Present
Pepin is the “Little House Wayside”. There is open prairie now, rather than the Big Woods, and a replica of the Ingalls log cabin has been rebuilt. While there are no furnishings in the cabin, there are several display boards with letters, articles and other things of interest to Wilder fans. There is also the Laura Ingalls Wilder Park, with a historical marker.
Also, Lake Pepin is located here, and well worth visiting, for both the view and for collecting Lake Pepin pebbles just like Laura did in Little House in the Big Woods, where she collected so many that she thought were so beautiful she accidentally ripped her pocket out of her dress.
The museum should not be missed, and they have many interesting artifacts on display, including a quilt given to the museum by Roger Lea MacBride.
