It was quite a surprise when I went to check something on the Laura Ingalls Wilder/Rose Wilder Lane Home and Museum website recently. For many years now this has been their web design and I was a little shocked when I found this instead.
They’ve gone in a completely different direction, my guess is they were from a custom designed website to one they could more easily update themselves, but the look is totally different and, I believe from the design, more mobile device friendly (I didn’t actually try it on a mobile device so somebody do try and report back). It also increases the focus on their online store. I asked when I called and the person answering the phone said since they weren’t sure yet since they had just changed over, but they think the log in at the top is for online store. The site also includes the lovely architectural drawings that will be the future of the site and includes a link to their official Facebook page. Big colorful blocks differentiate the different things you might be looking for on the site. They’ve also embedded the direct link to the future plans Ozark Watch episode (find the version with my helpful time codes and comments here). Take some time and explore it now.
