Caddie Woodlawn Park
South of Menomonie, WI

caddie woodlawn home

In 1857 John Woodhouse, with his wife Harriet and their five children, moved from the relative comforts of Boston to 160 acres of rugged Dunn County wilderness. One of the children was Caroline Augusta, who inspired "Caddie Woodlawn" in a book written by her granddaughter, Carol Ryrie Brink. The book won the 1935 Newbery Award for children's literature. It is considered a classic and is still a popular story read by thousands of children throughout the world.

In 1970, the Dunn County Historical Society dedicated the Caddie Woodlawn Historical Park. The actual house in which Caroline Woodhouse lived has been moved to the park from a nearby farm.


The Caddie Woodlawn home is reported to be haunted by the spirit of one of the children of the Woodhouse family. Several things have been noticed over the years by guests of this historic home.
