Debbie, this is a nice listing with some interesting history in it and the surrounding area.  I've never had the opportunity to visit the museum but I would love to.  I read all of her books back when I was a girl. 

I need to start putting my listings on AR. You are making yours interesting enough to read.

Debbie, you are motivating me to see  listings in another light.  Hard to belive one can purchase a turn key business for under 200,000, Don't you just love being in MO where a person can work and have a good life. (extra credit for your gas prices too- no wonder so many people come to vacation there)  - be good  cheryl

Debbie, I can't imagine how much fun that would be!  It looks to me like there would be a "family" type atmosphere in that lovely place.  What a terrrific listing!  Btw, I never knew there was a real Laura Ingalls house (all the more reason to visit :)!
