At the end of World War II, American soldiers returned home triumphant and, with the help of the GI Bill, built homes by the millions on the edges of America's cities.

Hutchinson's housing was primarily built during this period, from the '40s through the '60s. A full 37.06% of the city's housing hails from this era.
