Arthurdale TWHP

The NPS Teaching with Historic Places program uses historic properties listed on the National Register to enliven classroom learning. Teachers can access special lesson plans and other products on the program’s website. I wrote a lesson plan, “Arthurdale: A New Deal Community Experiment,” that the NPS reviewed and published in September 2014. This lesson plan looks at Arthurdale, a New Deal community in West Virginia that tested Progressive-era ideas in rural Appalachia.
