Inside the Sod House on the Prairie; Sanborn, MN
Image by _Jason_K
Sod House on the Prairie is an actual tourist destination located in Sanborn, MN, on the Laura Ingalls Historic Highway.
Information on the attraction’s website states that Stan McCone built several sod replicas in 1987-1988 as a personal tribute to the homesteaders who came to the prairie. Stan and his family presently live on the farm site where the sod buildings are standing.
The one room soddy is made of sod walls two feet thick, and it has a lumber roof and floor. Inside it’s furnished like the 1880 period. Near the sod house is a replica of a dugout, a much smaller and simpler structure that served as the initial shelter settlers created upon arriving, prior to building their sod house. The dugout has a floor and walls made of dirt, and a roof of cottonwood poles & dried grass. There is a ladder that leads to a small loft. Furnishings were very plain and simple.
Stan also built a sod outhouse, which served as the bathroom facility for guests who stayed overnight in the sod house when it was used as a bed & breakfast.
In addition, there is a small log cabin that was built to replicate a trapper’s cabin. It’s about the size of the dugout in which Laura Ingalls’ family lived, and contains furs, traps, and Indian things.
Surrounding the buildings are ten acres of restored prairie grasses six to eight feet tall. Pioneers called the prairie the "sea of grass" because it grew so tall in places that a person would need to stand on a horse just to see the land ahead. There are some trails where you can walk and enjoy the colorful flowers and grasses growing together.
