Dyess Colony
Established in 1934 by President Roosevelt, Dyess Colony, named for W.R. Dyess of Luxora, became home to 500 families stricken by the Great Depression. Selected on the basis of need, farming knowledge, and physical fitness, these pioneers each cleared land for farms with the government-subsidized help of 40 acres and a mule.
