If your're a Maud Hart Lovelace fan, you'll have to visit Mankato, MN, someday, which is the model for Deep Valley. Betsy's House and Tacy's House are open for visitors, and I believe there's a walking tour of Betsy's girlhood haunts as well.


I'd heard Mankato was the model for Deep Valley. I love visiting places that inspired books I've read...especially childhood favorites.
It's been years since I've read the book, and it looks like I may finally be able to find the few of them that I'm missing online.
What is it with the three-named women authors, BTW? I forgot to mention Laura Ingalls Wilder! Visiting the "little prairie" sites was one of the reasons we're considering a return to South Dakota one of these years.
