JACKRABBIT HOMESTEAD is a Web-based multimedia presentation featuring a downloadable car audio tour exploring the cultural legacy of the Small Tract Act in Southern California's Morongo Basin region near Joshua Tree National Park. Stories from this underrepresented regional history are told through the voices of local residents, historians, and area artists–many of whom reside in reclaimed historic cabins and use the structures as inspiration for their creative work.
The self-guided car audio tour and driving map of Wonder Valley–a jackrabbit homesteading settlement located east of Twentynine Palms–may be downloaded for free from the project's website at www.jackrabbithomestead.com.
The project was conceived by Kim Stringfellow and sponsored by the Twentynine Palms Historical Society.
Funding for this project is made possible by a grant from the California Council for the Humanities as part of the Council's statewide California Stories Initiative.
