Free land (or nearly free) can still be found in the 21st century! With a dream, flexibility, a willingness to work and a little imagination these towns are ready to welcome you with open arms (and a plot of land).
If you studied American history then you may recall the Homestead Act of 1862 which free land to those willing to move west and farm the land for 5 years. More than 200 million acres of land was given away and the homesteader spirit was forever ingrained into the hearts of Americans!
The spirit lives on in many small and rural towns, where you can get a plot free land (or nearly free). Each one has its own requirements for the land and how it is to be used; so it will take a bit of time and research to make sure it will be a good fit for you. But I believe that effort could be well rewarded!
So just where is this free land to be had? Well, I’m glad you asked!…
