The Homestead Act of 1862 affected millions of lives in the United States and across the world. Homestead National Monument of America exists to document and present these powerful stories of transformation.

The Homestead Heritage Center keeps these stories relevant in our ever-changing world. The building represents the Homestead Act with its unique roofline pointing westward, designed to resemble a single bottom plow moving through the sod. Just as sustainability was a way of life for early homesteaders, so it is with this facility. The building is constructed of local and sustainable materials to reinforce the homesteader story.

Today, there are more than 93,000,000 descendents of homesteaders with stories to tell, memories to share, and much to discover of times and ways of life that challenged and changed the nation and world. Are you one of those descendents?
