Info and Qualifications

160 Acres of surveyed U.S. public land is up for grabs for each claimant.


Any adult citizen or intended citizen who has never fought against the U.S. is welcome to quire this land.


You must be at least 21 years old and the head of your family.

Whats The Catch?

With just a small fee, and after five years of living on the land and meeting the requirements, it's yours!


And for those who just cant wait, the second option allows you to acquire the land after only 6 months of living on it, meeting the requirements, and purchasing it from the government at the low price of only $1.25 per acre.


Requirements: All Homesteaders are required to build a 12-by-14 ft dwelling and they must grow crops.

Special Civil War Veterans Deal!

As a 'thank you' to all who served the Union in our military during the Civil War, the amount of time you served will be deducted from your 5 year residency period!


Southern farmers are now welcome to partake in the Homestead Act.

Worried about Relocating and Supplies?

Now with the state of the art Transcontinental Railroad, transportation has never been easier.


With these rails, you will have easy access to manufactured goods, catalog houses, tools, clothing, and even barbed wire.


Numerous people have already claimed land, so don't feel as if you will be sent in the middle of nowhere. They have already begun building towns and schools.

Manifest Destiny

It is our destiny to move Westward and tame the land.


God is calling us to claim land and expand the rain of the mighty U.S. and the Church.
