From Boom to Dust in the Texas Panhandle

from Panhandle Plains Historical Museum

Program image

The Dust Bowl was a period of severe dust storms causing major ecological and agricultural damage to American and Canadian prairie lands from 1930 to 1936 (in some areas until 1940). Using photos and videos unique to the Panhandle Plains, we will investigate the causes of the Dust Bowl, hear first-hand stories of people who lived through it, and discuss the methods used to stop the deadly storms.
