Walnut Grove, MN
For $4 a car some farmer allows us to drive through his field and get to the site of the dugout on Plum Creek. This was probably the most exciting part for Princess Sparkley, so well worth the $4.
Here are the kids and Jed frolicking in Plum Creek just as Laura and Mary did years ago.

Walnut Grove's very own water tower. I'm sure this wasn't around in Laura's day, but it was an interesting shape so I took its picture.
