| The Heritage Center at Homestead National Monument of America, which looks out over the 100 acres of restored prairie, was designed to suggest the shape of a plow breaking the land for farming. Other symbolic features of the building include the Living Wall, which is a representation of how much land was transferred to citizens from the public domain, and also the north wall inside the lobby, which is constructed to resemble the layers of sod found beneath the prairie. See these features for yourself on your next visit to Homestead National Monument of America! www.nps.gov/home | #HomesteadNM #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque #NPS100 #FunFact #FunFactFriday
| Have you explored the woodland loop at Homestead National Monument of America? This portion of the trail system at Homestead gives you a chance to step inside a rare ribbon of lowland burr oak forest that offered security to homesteaders in the form of resources that allowed for building a home, fence, fuel to burn, and animals to hunt. Come explore this area today! Stop into either visitor center to get a map of the trail system before heading out. | #Homesteading #HomesteadNM #FindYourPark #Trails #MidwestNationalParks #NationalParks #NPS101 #Homestead
| The first Ranger hats were soft felt hats similar to those worn by the U.S. Army and the Texas Rangers in the 1800's. They had creases in the front and back of the hat creating four dents that formed a peak, nicknamed the "Montana peak" because it resembled the glacier peaks of Montana. | #HomesteadNM #NPS101 #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque #NPS
