A Special Exhibit Commemorating the 150th Anniversary of the Homestead Act
Discover the rich homesteading history of the West, and explore the many ways that we create and protect the places that we call home. The Homestead Act gave US Citizens the opportunity to lay claim to 160 acres of land, and provided the infrastructure for people to establish agricultural communities throughout the American West, offering new freedoms for those willing to work hard.
*A special traveling exhibit from the Homestead National Monument in Nebraska will be on display for three weeks, June 17th - July 7th.
