Help Repair

The Roof

The roof of the Wilder family farmhouse is currently in urgent need of repair and replacement.


The house and the events which took place in it, as documented by Laura Ingalls Wilder in her book Farmer Boy, are celebrated by readers of Ingalls Wilder’s books around the world, and by fans of the Little House TV series, based upon those books,.


The home’s cedar tile roof, in and of itself, represents and preserves a characteristically traditional and time-honored method of workmanship used in home construction in the mid-to-late nineteenth century.

Your philanthropy will enable us to hire the craftsmen and purchase the materials and equipment needed to preserve the residence exactly as it stood in Almanzo’s time. 


If you are interested in joining these outstanding local business in supporting the preservation of American history for future generations, donations of any amount are gratefully accepted by the Almanzo and Laura Ingalls Wilder Association.


We are a 501-C3 non-profit organization and donations are tax deductible. We will be happy to provide a receipt upon request.
