History of Greenbelt MD
Greenbelt was settled in 1937 as a public cooperative community
("an experiment in American socialism") in the New Deal
Era. The concept was at the same time both eminently practical and
idealistically utopian: the federal government would foster an "ideal"
self-sufficient cooperative community that would also ease the pressing
housing shortage near the nation's capital. Construction of the
new town would also create jobs and thus help stimulate the national
economic recovery following the Great Depression.
Greenbelt, which provided
affordable housing for federal government workers, was one of three
"green" towns planned in 1935 by Rexford Guy Tugwell,
head of the United States Resettlement Administration, under authority
of the Emergency Relief Appropriation Act. (The two other green
towns are Greendale, Wisconsin (near Milwaukee) and Greenhills,
Ohio (near Cincinnati). A fourth green town, Roosevelt, New Jersey
(originally called Homestead), was planned but was not fully developed
on the same large scale as Greenbelt. Eleanor Roosevelt, wife of
President Franklin D. Roosevelt, helped Tugwell lay out the town
on a site that had formerly consisted largely of tobacco fields.
Eleanor Roosevelt also was heavily involved in the first cooperative
community designed by the federal government in the New Deal Era,
Arthurdale, West Virginia, which sought to better the lives of impoverished
laborers by enabling them to create a self-sufficient, and relatively
prosperous, cooperative community. Moving Companies Greenbelt, MD
