This organization and historical site provide an educational opportunity through narrated tours, workshops, artifact museum, demonstrations, nature walk, archival research availability, school tours, and special events (i.e.. Christmas Story Hour, Harvest Festival & craft demonstrations and classes) for children and visitors to experience the period lifestyle of Almanzo Wilder who was born and raised here, 1857-1875. Interpretation of this site is based on the American classic book, Farmer Boy, written by Almanzo's wife, famed author, Laura Ingalls Wilder, as he described his recollections of his life here at this farm to her.
Almanzo & Laura Ingalls Wilder Association (ALIWA), incorporated June 5, 1987, is a volunteer, historic, educational non-profit organization. The museum/home-stead consists of 84 acres of farmland, woods, restored ORIGINAL post and beam constructed farmhouse (1840-1843), reconstructed post and beam framed barns and outbuildings, a museum/visitor center/research library/ archives/gift shop/ office building complex, orchard, covered picnic pavilion, and nature trail to the Wilder family frontage on the Trout River. The organization is currently in the process of completing a replica one room schoolhouse.
