Bill Kurtis The deteriorating log cabin at the "Little House on the Prairie" site in Kansas is expected to soon get a makeover. Siblings Bill Kurtis and Jean Schodorf, who own the cabin, said four decades of weather in Kansas has worn down the house. Schodorf's mother, Wilma Kurtis, inherited the land from her grandparents. She said that more than 20,000 people visit the site each year. About $30,000 has been raised to rebuild the cabin, but the owners need nearly $20,000 more to help pay skilled craftsmen.
