They had fixed up the exterior quite a bit since our last visit, though the inside is quite simple and pretty much empty still.

Yes, we did see the Little House replica too (and threw stones in Lake Pepin). :)

I know this is quite a while after your post and I dont know if you will see this, but my family used to own the Woodlawn house...3 or 4 different times. Both my mothers parents grew up in that area as did their parents and grandparents and so on and so on. We come from the Flick family(on my mother's father's side) just 4 generations ago from me, and that is where you will find our family owned the home. Also, on my mother's mother's side, you find Caroline Culbertson, who was the real teacher in the book of Caddie Woodlawn. If you have any questions, I would be happy to share all I know of the history. Feel free to email me. jenncochran@gmail.com
