Prairie Homestead celebrates 100 years July 28

It all started in 1909 when Edgar and Alice Brown moved from Pierce, NE, to the Badlands and filed a claim for a homestead.

They lived on their claim for 18 months, and through the Homestead Act, paid 50 cents an acre and received a patent on the 160 acres. The Brown's built a sod house before the winter would set in, this is now known as the Prairie Homestead.

In 1910, Ed and Lucy Crew and their son Leslie, homesteaded next to Edgar and Alice Brown, as well as many others who homesteaded in the area.

Edgar Brown passed away at the sod house in April, 1920.
