    The town of Lake View was created as a program of the federal Resettlement Authority under President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal program in response to the Great Depression. Lake View was an early resettlement colony specifically for African-American farm families during the Depression. The purpose of the resettlement program was to give farm tenant families and even small farm owners a chance to get back on their feet and to earn an income sufficient for a decent standard of living. Very little evidence of the New Deal-era resettlement exists today.
