Laura Ingalls Wilder Memorial Society

De Smet, South Dakota

Six of Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House books are set in the small prairie town of De Smet. Today you can tour her family's first Dakota house, their final home in town, and a replica of Laura's school. You can also visit the Big Slough, the five cottonwood trees Laura's Pa planted to honor "his girls," and the cemetery where the family is buried.
