Homestead National Monument Heritage Center
This new Homestead Heritage Center endeavors to share with the public the national aspects of the Homestead Act of 1862 and its effects on the people, land and world. The center houses a museum, curatorial storage area and serves as repository for the Homestead land-entry case files. This distinctive, two-story building provides a visual connection to natural and cultural resources found on the Freeman Homestead Claim. The unique curve of the roof line reflects the look of the sod buster’s plow.
