Research is constantly being conducted by Homestead National Monument of America to better understand and share personal stories of the homesteading experience and information about its impacts. With the help of many partners around the country, projects are being done to gather and/or study homestead land entry case files, homesteader oral histories, immigration during the homesteading era, the transformation of homestead lands over time, and much more.
