    This poster titled "Lakeside Village 1945-48" contains 9 photographs of Springfield College's Lakeside Village. The photographs show life at Lakeside Village, however, no one is identified and it is not known where the documents came from. Some of the photographs are faded and difficult to see. The poster is laminated. The first unit of Lakeside Village housing arrived on the Springfield College campus in March, 1946 and was ready for use by the fall of that same year. The housing project consisted of 13 units that were moved from Hartford to Springfield, and was built to house 65 married veterans and their families. It was built in association with the Federal Housing Authority due to the National Housing emergency that was taking place after the World War II. It closed in the fall of 1953 because there was a decrease in the need for veteran housing and the buildings were beginning to decay. The village was built in the area that is now Springfield College's Allied Health Sciences Building, across from Lake Massasoit and the President's House. There is a second poster of Lakeside Village, see here: http://cdm16122.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/ref/collection/p15370coll2/id/9998. less
