  • Trivia

    • During the debates, Lem McCary mentions that he was there when Lars Hanson founded the town "52 years ago." The sign as one enters Walnut Grove states "Founded 1840." That means this episode is supposed to be taking place in 1892, when Rose Wilder would have been six, and her mother Laura 25. Clearly, since Rose is only a baby in this episode, Laura would only be about twenty, which would put the setting of this episode in 1887--five years earlier.
