Take a step back in time and check out the Laura Ingalls Wilder display at Watkins Woolen Mill State Historic Site Oct. 15-25.
This hands-on exhibit is open in the visitor center 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Visitors have the opportunity to try on the period-style clothes Laura would have worn as a young woman: 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 (northeast of Excelsior Springs). For more information, call (816) 580-3387.
