Resettlement Community – Fruita CO

Description

“The original town site was planned to take in eighty acres with a park in the middle. In the 1930’s Fruita participated in several government projects including the Grand Valley Resettlement Project (later Western Slope Farms). Settled in groups of two or three families per area, thirty-four families were relocated by 1937. Another program was Rural Electrification Project which brought electricity to between 800 and 900 farms.”
