Urban Homesteading

I have always thought the Homestead Act of 1862 provided a model for the revitalization of small towns and decayed cities.

Before 1862, acquiring government-owned land was expensive, often prohibitively so. But the new law established a three-part process for securing surveyed government land, mostly out West. Would-be homesteaders filed an application, committed to five years living on and improving the parcel, and then filed for a deed of title. Over the next 123 years, approximately 4 million Americans made claims, leading the government to distribute 270 million acres, according to the National Park Service .

While some developers abused the system or exploited loopholes, the Homestead Acts offered opportunity to many who could never have afforded to own land if they had to wait to buy it outright. Former sharecroppers could farm their own land instead of someone else’s. Immigrants, single women and former slaves could all qualify for homestead claims as long as they were citizens or filed declarations of intent to become citizens at the time of their applications. The 1862 law, and those that followed, transformed what it meant to be a potential American landowner.
