After living in the surveyor's house in town in 1879-80 and then homsteading for several years, Charles Phillip Ingalls constructed this town house in 1887, and it was occupied by the family until 1928. It features many furnishings crafted by Mr. Ingalls. The Laura Ingalls Wilder Memorial Society purchased the house in 1967 and opened it to the public the next year.
The bodies of Charles, Caroline, Mary, Carrie, and Grace Ingalls, and the unnamed infant son of Laura and Almanzo Wilder are buried nearby in the De Smet Cemetery a little over a mile away. The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
