Description

With the promise of Free Land, the Homestead Act of 1862 enticed millions to cultivate the frontier. Families, immigrants, women, and freed slaves flooded 10 percent of the nation’s land to chase their American Dream. American Indian cultures and natural environments gave way to diverse settlement, agricultural success, and industrial advancement—building our nation and changing the land forever. In this position interns will help organize the park’s digital photography collection and assist the curatorial staff in processing and maintaining the museum collection. The intern will also work with the visiting public, including assisting with special events, answering questions, and participating in Homestead Days.
