Featured Location
Walnut Grove was a small town in Minnesota that was founded by Lars Hanson in 1840. It is where Oleson's Mercantile, the post office, the church and school, the feed and seed warehouse and Hanson's mill were located among others. The Oleson family lived directly in Walnut Grove while the Ingalls family lived in Plum Creek, and the Edwards and later the Garveys lived near there as well. Harriet and Nels Oleson also built Nellie a restaurant in Walnut Grove.

Because of it's generally friendly people and "small town charm", Walnut Grove had many passerbys; some of which took advantage of it's friendly folk such as the Galender brothers. The town did become a ghost town except for Doctor Baker and Lars Hanson when the Ingalls, Olesons and Garveys left to live in Winoka for a time.Read On...

On the Banks of Plum Creek is the fourth book written by Laura Ingalls Wilder in the Little House book series.

The Ingalls family moves from Kansas to Minnesota and settles in a dugout "on the banks of Plum Creek" as in the book's title.

Pa soon builds a fine, new house made of boards, which the family moves into. The house is near a town called Walnut Grove.

They also meet the mean and snobby Nellie Oleson who makes fun of them for being "country girls". Read On...
