Dean Butler is known the world over as Almanzo Wilder from the NBC TV series Little House on the Prairie. Although he has moved on to other things, he has generously continued to be a supporter of Little House fandom appearing at homesites, events, and even conferences about Laura Ingalls Wilder. He also produced two documentaries on the Wilder family and a series of extras for one of the DVD releases.
Butler last appeared on our show in 2014 in honor of the TV show's 40th anniversary event in Walnut Grove MN. This time he'll be talking about the second De Smet Event being held during July 2017. Both he and Alison Arngrim (TV's Nellie Oleson) will be speaking and signing autographs at the event. We've checked in with site director Tessa Flak and now we'll get more word on what to look forward to with Dean.
