Project Description

Designed to capture the essence of the American pioneering story, the new Homestead Heritage Center “grows from the land” and is a distinguishable form on the landscape. Symbolic of sod being turned by a plow, the upturned roof creates a recognizable destination for visitors entering the Park.

Offering an experience of surprise and discovery, the center embraces the resource it interprets. Intersecting planes of glass admit an abundance of natural light, while offering unobstructed views to the tallgrass prairie that surrounds the center.
