Lit­tle House on the Prairie log cabin to be re­built

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

The de­te­ri­o­rat­ing log cabin at the “Lit­tle House on the Prairie” site in Kansas is ex­pected to soon get a makeover. The Wi­chita Ea­gle re­ports the cabin was re-cre­ated and built near In­de­pen­dence in 1977 at the TV se­ries’ peak of pop­u­lar­ity. The show is based off Laura In­galls Wilder’s books cen­tred on her child­hood in the coun­try’s Mid­west. Wilder spent a year with her fam­ily at the Kansas site in 1869. Cabin own­ers Bill Kur­tis and Jean Schodorf say four decades of weather has worn down the house. They want to re­build the house as well as add a barn. Schodorf says more than 20,000 peo­ple visit the site each year.
