During the 1930s, the Farm Security Administration (FSA) worked to transform and document the lives of farmers across the United States who were affected by the Great Depression. During the 10 years of its existence, the Indiana office of the FSA worked to document economic and social conditions in Indiana, including rural resettlement and rehabilitation programs and planned communities. Visitors can explore the work of the nine photographers assigned to the project here captured in over 670 photos. It's worth noting that users can browse by county, photographer, or by keyword search. Additionally, the site contains a study guide for teachers and students who wish to learn more about the historical and cultural context of these rather unique items.
