Brief Land History Timeline

1862 – Homestead Act

“Allowed settlement of public lands and required only residence and improvement and cultivation of the land. Any person, a citizen or person intending to become a citizen, 21 years of age or older, and the head of a household could make application. With five years residence and improvements/ cultivation, only a $15.00 fee was required to get 160 acres. Repealed in 1976.”

1866 – The Mining Act

“Declared all mineral lands of public domain free and open to exploration and occupancy. The GLO established mineral survey districts. Prospectors could file a claim on mineral vein or load at GLO for $5.00 per acre.”

1870 – Placer Mining Act

“Permitted survey and sale of placer mining lands for $2.50 per acre.”

1872 – General Mining Law passed
