When The Homestead opened in 1963, it sat alone on the grounds of a dairy farm, with only the house that was the “homestead,” and a few newer homes to the north. Fifty-Sixth Street was a gravel road and kids were dancing to the Twist, the average house cost $3100 and troll dolls were the rage. At the southern and eastern most part of town, Homestead was surrounded by cornfields. The home that was located where Homestead is now, was relocated to Prescott Street and is still there today. The Homestead served 100 people at the time and staff used to purchase fresh farm eggs from the house on the corner at 54 and LaSalle Streets.
