Pepin sits on the edge of a strikingly wide expanse of the Mississippi River known as Lake Pepin. A natural dam below the town created the “lake.” Pepin is famous for being the hometown of Little House in the Big Woods author Laura Ingalls Wilder who was born on a farm near here in 1867. The Wilder Museum honors the author’s legacy as well as the city’s history. A replica of the now-famous “little house” can be seen in a small wayside park north of Pepin on Cty. CC. Charter a sail boat, visit an art gallery or enjoy a meal at lakeside restaurant.
