Land Titles Office
The homesteaders would come here to get their deeds of ownership for their land. The Dominion Lands Act of 1872 offered homesteads of 160 acres for $10. The settlers had to live on the homestead for at least six months each year for three years, build a home, break some land, and seed at least 20 acres.
Settlers purchased their homesteads from a land titles office.
