Visit the homestead of Ed and Alice Brown and their 160-acre claim. In 1909 they began to experience pioneer life at the Prairie Homestead in their home built of dirt bricks and a grass roof. This original dirt-sod dug-out (one of the only original farm sod homes intact today) and its outbuildings allow you to step back to those homesteading days. Here you will see live farm animals and the rare white prairie dog. You can even dress up in pioneer clothing and create your western adventure if you like. The Homestead is fun for all ages with a history room, optional video presentation, and a walking tour of the sod home, root cellar, outhouse, chicken coop, and barn. There's a visitor center with a snack bar, gift shop, and restrooms.
