Homestead (buildings)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A homestead is an isolated dwelling, especially a farmhouse, and adjacent outbuildings,[1] typically on a large agricultural holding such as a ranch or station.[2]

In North America the word "homestead" historically referred to land claimed by a settler or squatter under the Homestead Acts (USA) or Dominion Lands Act (Canada). In Old English the term was used to mean a human settlement, and in Southern Africa the term is used for a cluster of several houses normally occupied by a single extended family.

In Australia it refers to the owner's house and the associated outbuildings of a pastoral property, known as a station.[3][4]
