Clear Creek History Park - Black History Month - Golden ColoradoAlso tomorrow, the Clear Creek History Park will present The Black Homesteader Experience from 2-3:30.  The Homestead Act of 1862, which granted 160 acres of free land for filing fees totaling just $18, enticed thousands of Americans and new immigrants to journey to western territories. Homesteaders traveled with hopes for a new life and opportunities not possible in the eastern states. Black American homesteaders, a significant proportion of whom were freed slaves, had a wide variety of experiences while staking their claims and trying to succeed in the harsh environment. Presented by historian Priscilla Marshall. Recommended for participants age 12 and up.
