This place is special to me because it’s in Gage County and I live in Gage County.  It commemorates the 1862 Homestead Act.  Any person could claim up to 160 acres by living there and cultivating and improving the property for five years.  The National Monument includes some of the first acres successfully claimed under the Act.
