A little known fact about Little House on the Prairie is that it was started as a television series, which was later adapted for the big screen. It’s possible that you’re not aware of this.

So, let’s make a little bit different story. The Little House has been around since the 1920s. The original Little House, named Whitehouse-Finnemore, was a character in a story called “Granny is a Lady” written by Anna Ford.
“Granny” was an elderly lady who lived in a barn in Kenosha, Wisconsin. During the time when the show aired, more women were moving into the area to work in the fields than ever before.
It seems the wealthy Whitehouse-Finnemore was thrilled by the influx of women. She wanted to set up a home for them. But after the initial excitement of being allowed to move into the world of rural womanhood, they were quickly taken advantage of.
Young girls would come from out of town to visit the farm and get their picture taken with her. Some girls would even live with her permanently until they had children of their own.
Although it might seem like a bad thing now, it wasn’t long after the TV show began airing that she began to receive a lot of abuse. Some girls were treated harshly. They were sent to stay with older men who bought them things to distract them from the fact that the women were allowed to run off with guys.
Of course, the wealthy ladies got a lot of attention as well. In the season three episode titled “Granny Was a Lady,” they decide to try and woo the local sheriff and some local residents are just happy to have them visit their property. The original cast of poor thing that lived in the barn has become quite famous. The actors who portrayed the villianous “Grannies” and the oblivious citizens of Kenosha are such fond memories of the show. In fact, a real estate agent will probably ask for the name of the original Little House fan.
