The Homestead Act that President Lincoln signed into law in 1862 opened the West to millions and changed America forever.

A new visitor center has been designed to offer a fresh interpretation of this epic story.

Shown here are preliminary concept sketches and a later graphic layout from the design development currently in process.

Identifying the main themes and distilling the multi-layered story has required close coordination between David, detailing engineer Kevin Brookes, the Park staff, NPS specialists and the script writer.
