US Historic rammed earth houses

One of the houses built in 1937 by Thomas Hibben as part of the New Deal programme has been recognised as a historical monument. Seven rammed earth homes were built as part of the Gardendale development – to provide employment and to trial the rammed earth construction technique.

Great to see the buildings recognised
