Greenbelt, Maryland is a National Historic Landmark planned community built in 1937 as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal. One of three green towns established during the Great Depression, the project put struggling Americans to work, provided low-income housing in the Washington, D.C. region and was a bold experiment in town planning and cooperative living. The Greenbelt Museum allows visitors to experience Greenbelt’s beauty and rich history through tours of our historic home, exhibits, public lectures, educational programs for children, and walking tours of the historic community. We invite you to explore!
