There's Gold in Them California Hills - California Land Makes a Great Gift

By: Scott Moger

The dream of mining land in United States for gold, and specifically in California, has been a dream shared by thousands and thousands of people since the mid Nineteenth Century when the "California Gold Rush" hit its peak. Many thousands of Americans from the East, South and Midwest of the United States left their homes, jobs, relatives, and friends and headed west to try to claim their share of the riches which were rumored to be under every rock in every stream in every corner of California, the "Golden State."

Those were difficult and dangerous times when the pursuit of gold could be life threatening, but thought to be worth the risk by many. It's no wonder that the state's motto is "Eureka," which in Greek means "I have found it." In most cases, these prospectors became settlers and claimed land as well as gold.

Well nowadays it's much safer and much easier to stake a claim in California...and in fact, in any state of the United States without risk or even traveling...and for the tiny sum of only $3.95. Although today’s claim is for land, not gold…the deal itself is well worth its weight in gold!

Yes, a small company named American Acres, Inc has found a very unique way to provide the American dream of land ownership at this super low cost. Well, at least an affirmation of that dream. Let's say you want to own land. Well how about starting small…with a single square inch plot? Yes, a ONE-SQUARE INCH PARCEL! You can get the land and a very attractive deed with you name on it to show off to all of your friends for as little as US $3.95. (It’s called “bragging rights!). The land is made available through the Own A Piece of America website and can be received virtually instantly via an email deed.

These "'mini-estates", are available for each state, but can't be built on, lived on or retired on. Owners cannot make any improvements or develop the parcels. Owners shall not occupy the parcels and must grant rights of ingress and egress over their parcel. But they are completely free of additional responsibility and obligations. And the fun of bragging about owning land in the United States is priceless, to say the least!" And oh, what a wonderful gift it makes!

Although use of the land may be limited, the responsibilities (as one would hope) are equally minimal. No paying taxes of any kind…ever! Owners need not mow their lawn, take out the trash, throw away junk mail, participate in local jury duty, or endure any other daily adversities associated with being a land owner.

So, it has been asked, "What is the purpose of owning a one square inch of land...anywhere?" "What can I do with such a tiny piece of earth?" Well, if you don't have a sense of humor...or an imagination, then these personalized, yes legal, Deeds to each state just aren't for you. They are the perfect gift for the person who has everything. It's the most wonderful unique gift idea for a person who dreams of living in, say California...or Hawaii, or New York...or anywhere where they don't live now. And you never know, you might find a little gold chip in your one square inch!

It's great for all gift giving occasions including Mother's Day, Father's Day, birthdays, Christmas, etc. Just go to Own A Piece Of America a learn more about the Deeds. In fact you might want to buy a Deed to the United States - one Deed that entitles you to ownership of one square inch of land in all 50 states at once. Check it out at their website.
