The Great Depression

The Great Depression, which began with the Stock Market Crash of 1929, lasted for over a decade and few were safe from the far-reaching effects it had on various aspects of American life.  Prices and policies changed, forcing people from various socioeconomic groups to adopt new lifestyles and practices.  This exhibit reflects on the Great Depression's impact on the counties in central Piedmont Virginia.
