Little House on the Prairie-Intro
Last Update: 11/17/2011 
Welcome to my Little House Fan-site!
     Ahh, Little house on the Prairie. When my parents first told me to watch that show, I was like...."Ha. You're kidding, right?" I thought that only the 70's/80's generation would find it entertaining. But now? Not a chance. Or so I thought....  I watched my very first episode sometime in June, 2009. I started watching my first episode around season 5, so I didn't really get who was who, or what was going on. But my Mom kept on convincing me to keep watching. I sighed and thought, "Okay, lets just get this over-with." I started watching one, then another, then another...
And I suddenly loved it.
     I finished the whole series. For those of you that didn't watch all the seasons(like from 9th to 10th), I'm not going to spoil it for you(I'll warn you when you're about to come across a spoiler lol.) I've got something to say about the 10th season(which are the post-movies), it'll prob show up later on in my site. Basically, Little House is amazing :) And I created this site as an appreciation toward the series.

Little House on the Prairie Set Location

     The set is beautiful! So much stuff was filmed there, when you keep watching the series, it feels like a second home. Little House was filmed in Simi Valley, CA at Big Sky Ranch. Many western movies were filmed there, Little House being the most popular. Did you know that some of the episodes were historical events that happened in the past? For example, Laura Ingalls Wilder was a real person who lived in the old times, and she wrote a book called Little House on the Prairie, and that's how the show started. 

     Anyway, (SPOILER!!!) I would have loved to visit the whole town, but in the last episode(post-movie), I read about how Michael Landon didn't want others to use his set for their movies, so in that episode, he decided that the town should be blown up, to completely end the show. When you see the last episode, you'll know why. BUT, the original "Little House" was not blown up. Michael Landon didn't want the original house to be used by others either, so a cast member took the original house to his private property, IDK if this is a rumor or not. I found out that very few things from the set were still there, but unfortunately the California fire in 2003 occurred near the filming area, and destroyed some stuff, including the house? I'm not sure if they still have it, or if it's open to the public, but it'd be cool to visit the location someday.

PS: Here's some info of the set location, or how you could visit what's left of the set: http://www.seeing-stars.com/StudioTours/WarnerBrosTour.shtml      http://allday.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2007/05/18/194156.aspx   http://www.videosforfamily.com/lhotpfilming.htm
