CUBA, N.Y. - The tales of Laura Ingalls Winder captivated young readers and TV viewers alike. Little House On The Prairie was must-see TV for countless families a couple decades ago.
But here in Western New York, there was particular interest in the stories. Pa Ingalls, who Michael Landon brought to life on the little screen, was actually born and spent his childhood in the little Allegany County community of Cuba.
There are still plenty of family and reminders of the connections between the prairies and the hills of the Southern Tier.
