AUGUST 19-23: Uptagrafft Homestead Restoration in Usk
Learn log building and other traditional skills and help preserve history on an historic homestead on the Colville National Forest! Built around 1919, Uptagrafft Homestead was one of many homesteads in the area that were filed under the Homestead Act. The Forest now uses the homestead as an interpretive site, demonstrating the typical layout of homesteads that were once common in the area, but that have become increasingly rare. According to Public Domain Land maps was owned by Andrew Uptagrafft in 1919; by 1933, the property had transferred to Edward McShane and was transferred into US Forest Service ownership in 1938. The transfer most likely occurred as part of the resettlement administration efforts during the aftermath of the Great Depression. The Resettlement Administration bought land back that typically was difficult to prove up. When one visits the homestead site, one attains a better understanding of how hard life would be in the location. The homestead is distant to water and is located in fairly steep terrain. Your participation will help preserve this piece of history for future generations to enjoy. Come for a couple of days or stay the whole week
