Root Cellar, Stratton Homestead Site

Root Cellar, Stratton Homestead Site

Located on high ground southwest of Fort Rock, this site was originally homesteaded by Fred and Hannah Stratton, who staked their claim on 320 acres here in 1912, three years after passage of the Enlarged Homestead Act. They “proved up” on their claim within the required five years, but later sold the farm, and, like most other homesteads, it was eventually abandoned. Over the decades, most homestead remnants have disappeared--dismantled for their wood, destroyed during WWII military maneuvers, or burned as hazards to grazing cattle and nosy tourists.
