Greenhills is an American treasure. It is one of only three model greenbelt towns built during the Great Depression by the New Deal s Resettlement Administration, designed to move working people out of crowded cities and into new, well-planned communities in the suburbs. Construction began in December 1935, and the first families moved there in 1938. Greenhills featured schools, churches, and stores within easy walking distance, as well as wonderful amenities: walking paths, green spaces, and community and recreational facilities. In hard times, when many struggled with crowded, decrepit housing, Greenhills offered affordable, well-built homes with the latest conveniences. When one-third of the country was out of work, many men were employed in the planning and building of Greenhills."
