Show generally

Corrected entry: It was against school board rules in those days for a married woman to be a teacher. Laura never taught school after she was married. Also Miss Beadle would have had to quit once she became Mrs. Sims.

Correction: I'm trying to figure out if this is based on historical facts or the shows storyline. Either way, it doesn't really matter. In the show, Caroline Ingalls and Mrs Olsen regularly substituted. Mr Applewood appeared for one episode. In real life, When Laura returned to Walnut Grove, she learned Nellie now had a rival: The school teacher's daughter.http://en.allexperts.com/q/Little-House-Prairie-1131/Walnut-Grove-Teacher.htmhttp://webpages.marshall.edu/~irby1/laura/life.html

Show generally

Corrected entry: The show is set in a small town on the southern Minnesota prairie, which is flat and nearly treeless. But the show was filmed in the foothills of southern California in terrain which bears absolutely no resemblance to Minnesota. Certain episodes, for example, show the characters camping, fishing and hunting in mountainous terrain - there are no mountains within hundreds of miles of Minnesota.

Correction: You are wrong, the state of Minnesota has mountains. The Sawtooth Mountains, Eagle Mountain (2,301 feet) just to name a couple. Plus there are mountains in South Dakota (the Black Hills are wooded mountains), one of the neighboring states of Minnesota. So to say that there are no mountains within hundreds of miles of Minnesota is totally wrong.

Show generally

Corrected entry: After Caroline starts working at the restaurant in town, who takes care of Grace? Charles is also working outside the home; Laura and Mary are teaching; Albert and Carrie, then later James and Cassandra, are at school. We don't see Caroline take Grace to anyone's home, nor does she take her to the restaurant.

Correction: Actually in the episode where Caroline is telling/asking Charles about working at the restaurant she tells him that Mrs. Garvey has agreed to watch Grace while she is working and the kids are in school.

Trivia

In the opening credits, the three girls are shown running down a hill that has several flowers growing on it. In reality, the flowers were fakes, and Melissa Sue Anderson (Mary) tripped over one of the fakes during one take and gave herself whiplash.
