Geocache Description:

This cache is located at the Laura Ingalls Wilder birthsite.

This is a matchstick container.

The site of the "Little House in the Big Woods" is 7 miles from the Village of Pepin. Laura was born February 7, 1867 at this site. The original log house and barn are no longer there. The big woods is gone, too. What once was the big woods is now a modern farming community. A highway winds through the land, which was the Ingalls farm, probably following very closely the wagon track, which Laura describes in her book. One thing that still remains is the "beautiful lake," about which she wrote. People here admire its beauty just as Laura did on her first visit to Pepin. A log cabin has been built to simulate the original little house. A service road and parking area have been provided. House is open year round.
