Hickok reported to Eleanor on the squalid conditions of a mining town in West Virginia called Scott's Run, and Eleanor, often with Nancy Cook, immediately went to see for herself. In the first New Deal resettlement housing projects she and Nancy, which frequent car trips, helped set up a self-sufficient community and advised the residents on housing, which Louis Howe had supervised the purchase of inadequate prefabs. It was Eleanor's pet project, but soon the Congress rebelled against funding what they regarded as a failed enterprise. Eleanor continued to support it, even after it has lost federal funding and the homes had been sold to residents. Today it is a historic site called Arthurdale.
