    A Dustbowl farm. This house is occupied; most of the houses in this district have been abandoned. The Dust Bowl, also known as the Dirty Thirties, was a period of severe dust storms that greatly damaged the ecology and agriculture of the US and Canadian prairies during the 1930s; severe drought and a failure to apply dryland farming methods to prevent wind erosion (the Aeolian processes) caused the phenomenon. The dust bowl led to extreme emigration, within already troubled times: the great depression
