“Rocky Ridge Farm in Mansfield after Almanzo had cleared a good deal of the land,” photograph by Laura Ingalls Wilder, ca. 1910

Laura and Almanzo bought land, cleared it, built a house (“We cut and planed and fitted every stick of it ourselves,” Laura said), and lived out their long lives on the farm they called Rocky Ridge.
