These 23 Houses In Missouri From The 1930s Will Open Your Eyes To A Simpler Time

The 1930s were a particularly difficult time, especially for rural Missourians.  The Great Depression, locusts, grasshoppers, and drought made things difficult for almost everyone.  Many of the homes where families lived during that time were temporary shacks, overcrowded, simple, and basic.  Let’s take a visual trip back in time and visit some of these homes.

Was your family in this area in the 1930’s?  What was their experience?  Do you have any family photos from that time?  Share in the comments below.
