The Land of Laura Ingalls Wilder
In 1879 Laura Ingalls Wilder along with her family moved from Walnut Grove to the Dakota Territory and reached Silver Lake near the future town site of De Smet. While in De Smet, she met Almanzo Wilder, fell in love and was married. This is also where their child Rose Wilder Lane was born.
The citizens and settlement of De Smet became the subject and inspiration for five of the renowned "Little House" books.
