Homestead Act 150th Traveling Exhibit
Homestead National Monument of America recognizes that a number of National Park Service sites, as well as 30 state historical societies and other organizations have an association with the Homestead Act. Homestead National Monument has created a traveling exhibit that commemorates this historic anniversary to loan to groups through 2013 that also share an association to the Homestead Act.
These exhibits are easy to set up and easy to ship from one venue to the next. The exhibit uses double sided rollup banner-stands and the dimensions of the banners are approximately 33 inches wide by 85 inches tall.
