    • Hooverville is a term describing a series of villages that appeared during the Great Depression in the United States from 1929 through the 1930s and 1940s. These villages were often formed in unpleasant neighborhoods or undeveloped areas and consisted of dozens or hundreds of shacks and tents that were temporary residences of those left unemployed and homeless by the Depression. One in Washington, DC, was as large as 15,000. The name of these shanty-towns is a spin on the last name of the 31st President of the United States who served during the beginning of the Depression, Herbert Hoover. At the time, the people were frustrated at the lack of help from the government, and many blamed Hoover for their plight.
