29 Palms Homesteaders


John Meyer Homestead-1929

The following list is composed of 29 Palms homesteaders shown on a 1930 survey map by Walt Ketchum. It is likely that Frank Bagley added the homesteader names to the map in 1936. The Society has obtained copies of the homestead files for the listed homesteaders from the National Archives. Those documents are now in the east wing of the schoolhouse museum and are open to researchers.
