"The Cabin at Wildflower Woods" lies nestled on the shore of Sylvan Lake, near Rome City, Indiana. It is the beloved home and final resting place of Gene Stratton-Porter, one of Indiana’s most widely read authors and one of the world’s first nature photographers and conservationists.
Gene Stratton-Porter was an individual that held true to her beliefs and never let societal norms stop her from achieving her dreams. The Gene Stratton-Porter Memorial Society seeks to share her legacy with visitors by telling her story and making her achievements relevant for today's society and future generations. We invite you to join us for a day, a tour, an event or online to learn more about this amazing Hoosier.
