The Quaint New Deal Town In West Virginia That Seems Frozen In Time

Once upon a time, the United States of America was reeling under the weight of the Great Depression. And, in an attempt to pull the country out of that massive economic crisis, President Franklin D. Roosevelt instituted a program known as the New Deal. His wife, Eleanor, actively promoted portions of this program as well, and it was thanks to her influence that the historic West Virginia town of Arthurdale was born.
