An article in the local paper here (Virginia) talked about the use of homesteading in present day Kansas to try and offset the loss of population in parts of the midwest and specifically Kansas. The article talked about Marquette, KS and how the town purchased 80 acres of farmland, and is giving the land away one lot at a time free to those who will build a house on the land and live in it for at least a year. Is anyone familiar with this present day homesteading? Other areas in the mid-west doing the same? Thanks.
