The "rock house", an English cottage was built for Laura and her husband, Almanzo Wilder by their daughter, Rose for their retirement. Rose paid $11,000 to build the house and another $3,000 to have electricity brought out to them from town.
When Rose moved out of the original farm house, the Wilder's moved back "home" to live out their final days. This wonderful house was a rental until the 1990s and has been restored to how it looked when Laura lived there.
