Laura Ingalls Wilder Day – Field Trip

Sunday we decided to take my daughter to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Day. She has been wanting to go since we started learning about Laura Ingalls Wilder earlier this year. Laura Ingalls Wilder days was held at Heritage Hill Historical Center in Green Bay. The hype of this was the fact that the actors were there from the show Little House on the Prairie. I must say that I was really disappointed because one we really didn’t see the actors and two I wasn’t going to spend money just to get an autograph. The second reason was I expected it to be more. Really it was just like any other day at Heritage Hill. I thought there would be tents and a lot more hands on activities but there wasn’t. I don’t think we will go again next year. My daughter had fun so that is what matters.

A Beautiful Day Spent At Heritage Hill

Heritage Hill is a State Historical Park. This was very educational and fun to go to as the kids learned about different buildings that were built here in Wisconsin and what they were used for. Most of the buildings are from the 1800’s.

This is the Cotten House. It is a Greek revival house that was built in the 1840s. This home belonged to the John Cotton Family until 1883 when it was sold to J.W. Woodruff. In 1896 Woodruff sold it to the Catholic Diocese. In 1938 the Diocese gave the Cotton House to the Brown County Historical Society and it was moved to its present location. It was then restored and opened as a museum in 1941. Cotton House is listed on the National Register of Historical Places.
