Homesteads were large pieces of land that people could live on for free. They were able to do this as long as they made the land better. some mad farms and some used the land to make crops.
wow this Harvey house is really nice!
when the rail road was build it was a really big part of transportation. It also employed imigramts from Europe and Asia. It connected to the southern pacific railroad.
Boom Towns were towns that suddenly blew up with tourism . It was usally because of mining . many people would hire others to mine for them.
Did you hear another train got robbed.
Harvey Houses were hotel like place where miners and other people stayed. It was a preety big thing. It also helps the rail road with its success.
Thanks to Havey houses, the rail road, and boom towns tourism was a big thing. people would come to see tourist attractions. Some actually settled and made a life in big boom towns or places with big tourist attractions.
i need to get to the train.
Im staying at the Harvey House it's really nice
The wild west was full of crime. with the new rail road that made another way for crime to seep in. Some people would rob the train . Bankes were also robbe. often time the law was not there to help or put a stop to the lawless behavior.
