This is a typical small-town cemetery that happened to have some very famous residents. Wilder‘s grave stones were well-kept, but certainly not eye-popping. That is not why we went there, of course, and we enjoyed our visit, but if you are looking for opulence or...More

This is a nice, well-kept old cemetery, with lots of very old graves. We visited in particular to see Laura Ingalls Wilder's grave, which is easy to find with bushes planted around it.

It was raining when we went, so it was a quick trip. The graves are marked very well. Follow the arrows and look by the bushes. The cemetery is located not far from Laura's home.
