Barn Charm


We just got back from a few days away.  The first town we stopped at on our trip was Mansfield, MO where we saw the home of Laura Ingalls Wilder.  Or, I should say homes.  We saw the home Laura and Almanzo built and also the home that Rose, their daughter, had built for them which was just down the road a bit.  The Ingalls only lived in this more modern house 8 years before moving back to their first home.  

At the second house, I snapped a picture of the barn and this was as close to it as I could get.  It was a very interesting tour and I'll be sharing more about it and also some outside photos of both houses later in the week.  We weren't allowed to snap photos inside.

Linking with Tricia's Barn Charm  

Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time...

  7. Hi Cheryl, I like the picture of the barn being raised in the country. I love the picture of the roses and two little kittens in the previous post. I thought of you yesterday when I saw them working on power lines. We had a storm go through to the north and east of us. Have a wonderful day and your daughter does a good job of taking pictures. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

  16. Oh I'll be interested to read what you have to say about your tour. I wonder why they would leave a new home for the older home, for example.

    That barn is still in great shape if a little weathered.

  26. ooohhhh such a sweet spot and a really charming old place!! I never understand why some people don't allow inside photos, I have been to so many neat places where they didn't allow inside photography!!

    It's always good to get away for a spell, this sounds relaxing and fun!!
