Product Description

In 1893, a Mr. Daniel Kline made an application, number 8224, for a Homestead claim and filed the proper paperwork (with four witness as well as the Notary). He even sent in a piece of cut out paper from a newspaper he had advertised in, noting the details and the advertisement had ran the required two weeks in 1898. The announcement stated (see clipping) that he had lived on and cultivated the land on his claim. Again, the four same witnesses attested to it as well. In 1913, the Dept of the Interior denied the application #0229, which replaced the old No. 8224, stating that Mr. Kline had failed to meet the  specification in terms of the Homestead and he would have to give up the claim. Mr. Klein contested it and sent in paperwork to prove that he had met the terms of the agreement for the homestead act. I can only guess that he may have won his case, because all the documentation was returned to him. This is a very, very interesting piece of US and Colorado history, one that could be framed in your office or home.  Imagine this hanging in your study or your rec room. It would definitely be an interesting party conversation piece or a great thing to teach your children about the west being settled. A piece of history of Colorado. Some folks make historical scrapbooks with these cool pieces of history! About 8 documents. They are old an fragile. See photos and call us with any question, thanks! Special note one envelope is from another lot, and is in one of photos by mistake address is Mary Perkins from 1935, sorry disregard that one piece.
