Homestead National Monument of America
8523 W. NE Hwy 4
8523 W. NE Hwy 4, 4 mi. W. - Free land! was the cry. The Homestead Act had an immediate and endurable effect on America that is still felt today. Under this law, more than 270 million acres were turned over to individuals. This great transformation led to profound and lasting changes to the land, to American Indians, immigration and migration patterns and agriculture. Homestead National Monument of America commemorates the lives and accomplishments of all pioneers and the changes brought on by this act. The park includes the Daniel Freeman site, museum exhibits and videos, historic structures, hiking trails, a designated Watchable Wildlife Site and a newly-published curriculum guide for teachers. The Heritage Center features interactive exhibits. Open year-round, Mon-Fri, 8:30am-5pm; Sat-Sun, 9am-5pm. Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Year's Day. Free. 402-223-3514
