The pdf to the right is a wonderful find in the General Land Office Archives for Walker County. It is field notes written by John Niederhofer(listed as John Nieberhofer in the archives) while applying for a homestead for a section of land along Boswell Creek east of Four Notch Road. The homestead claim was enabled by a law that allowed anyone in Texas to go and lay claim to unused land in the Public domain for the use of raising a family. What a fantastic concept. Our government should release property in the public domain for domestic development.
