Homesteading: The Dream and The Realities
The Homestead Act of 1862 significantly affected the American West. People flocked from the East Coast and Midwest to the Dakotas and the West Coast, but no place was more homesteaded in the United States than the area that later became Montana. This exhibit features a selection of photographs, maps, and pamphlets related to homesteading in Montana.
