Geocache Description:

This series, FWP or Famous Wisconsin People, will acknowledge the accomplishments of some well-known (and maybe not so well-known) individuals from our state.

Laura Ingalls born in 1867 is an American author who is best known for her award winning book series about her youth, the Little House Series. Laura was born and lived part of her early years in Pepin, Wisconsin. The site of her birth is commemorated with a small log cabin.

Laura and her family relocated and lived in Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa and South Dakota. The setting and events in many of her books, highlight the experiences in the areas where the family settled. Laura became a teacher at age 15, an occupation which she said she really did not enjoy. She married and left teaching at age 18. Her husband, Almanzo Wilder, was 10 years older than Laura. Laura continued to write books to chronicle their married life. Laura died just days after her 90th birthday and is buried alongside her husband and child in Mansfield, MO.

You are searching for a small camouflaged container placed on the bike path along HWY 36/Loomis Road in honor of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s accomplishments.
