c.1920 Affordable Home in Walnut Grove, MN Under $50K
This sweet c.1920 bungalow is located in the low-crime town of Walnut Grove (pop. 871), a tiny town in the southern part of Minnesota. The property has natural woodwork, built-ins, and a detached garage.
Walnut Grove was platted in 1874. It was named for a grove of black walnut trees near the original town site.
Walnut Grove is the home of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum, dedicated to the author of the Little House on the Prairie books. Wilder and her family lived in the area for a part of her childhood and the location is the setting for the Plum Creek part of the Little House book series. Charles Ingalls, her father, was the community’s first justice, and her only brother, Charles Frederick ‘Freddy’ Ingalls (November 1, 1875 – August 27, 1876), was born in Walnut Grove. The name “Walnut Grove” was also used in the Little House on the Prairie television series; however, the program was filmed in California.
