Homestead National Monument

Homestead National Monument was established to commemorate the Homestead Act that opened the way for free land and the expansion west. It is located in Nebraska because it is believed the homestead on this spot, applied for by Daniel Freeman, was one of the first, and possibly THE first homestead granted under the Homestead Act.

Education Center

There is an Education Center with an extensive collection of information about the homesteads and the people who attempted this method of earning land.

Freeman School

A small town grew around the area of the Freeman Homestead. In order to educate the growing population of area children the Homestead School was built.
