Video of the week: the original Little House in Kansas

I’ve posted previously about my stop in Independence, Kansas in summer 2007 to visit the Laura Ingalls Wilder “Little House on the Prairie,” which was reconstructed on its original site using traditional materials and layout.

As I played with my disposable video camera and finally reviewed its contents, I found that I’d made some clips when I visited the Ingalls home with my daughter.

After some minor wrestling with Microsoft’s Movie Maker on my laptop, this is what we saw on the prairie (although it was too dark to film the interior, I can assure you that the one-room house had a couple of beds, a table and chairs and a few cooking items, and that was it for amenities.)
