In a study of this kind the writer feels that there must be some basic facts from which to work: therefore, a survey was made of twenty Negro farm homes in Wood county to determine facts as indicated by a questionnaire form.

These families are located within the rural section of Quitman, Texas, a town located in Northeast Texas.

The families included in this study rank in various groups as to professional status, some are school teachers, however, the greatest number are farmers.

There has been no definite study made of the exterior conditions of Negro homes in this county, therefore, the aim of this thesis is to analyze the physical aspects of Cann Community, and give suggestive ways of improving their conditions.
