Watkins Mill State Park Hosting Laura Ingalls Wilder Display

Watkins Mill State Park is giving visitors a chance to take a step back in time with the Laura Ingalls Wilder display at Watkins Woolen Mill State Historic Site. The display will be at the state park through Tuesday.

The hands-on exhibit is open in the visitor center 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on week days and Saturday and 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Visitors can try on the period-style clothes Laura would have worn as a young woman including a corset, bustle and sunbonnet. Guests are then invited to walk the historic site grounds to see if they can find some of the items mentioned in her “Little House on the Prairie” books.

Watkins Mill State Park is located at 26600 Park Road N in Lawson. For more information, call 816-580-3387.
