Overview Poor Russian Jewish immigrants established the Atwood Colony in 1896 when B'nai B'rith and investment companies encouraged 75 adults and six children to settle in Atwood by offering farm land, seed, water rights, houses, implements, and cattle. The barren colony, lacking promised assistance, was near starvation and failed. By 1899, only a few Jewish families remained.
