I loved the "Little House on the Prairie" tv show and have enjoyed her story, but is there anything else interesting to do in De Smet? I would really like to find where I can go there to have local history questions answered (not about the Ingalls family). I am trying to find out if there was active oil exploration in the 1880's as my husband's gr. grandfather lived there then and was in that line of work.
I am so interested in the life of Laura Ingalls Wilder and her family during their stay in DeSmet from 1879-1928. I would love to visit, but financially, I just cannot at this time.
Are there any pictures of Ingalls artifacts (their furniture, clothing, sewing projects, schoolwork, etc) available through any Laura websites? I have scoured the internet and just cannot get enough of the Ingalls family. Please help!!!
