Learn The Fascinating History Behind Kansas’ Beloved Little House On The Prairie Museum

Kansas is a relatively young state, with the first pioneers arriving circa 1827. The area was full of violence and tension as abolitionists and pro-slavery settlers struggled to gain control of the land. After the abolitionist views won and The Free State entered the Union in 1861, life didn’t get significantly easier or safer in the untamed new state… as those familiar with Little House on the Prairie know. You can experience the lifestyle of Kansas’ early settlers at the Little House on the Prairie Museum, a fascinating site that once hosted Charles Ingalls and his family. Slip on your calico dresses and buckskin pants, because this historic homestead will make you feel like you’re living life on the untamed American frontier.
