Abstract: A study of the various housing facilities in the homes of forty-six high school freshmen girls of fourteen and fifteen years of age in three rural-town high schools of Guilford County and their contribution to home recreation was made. Due to her background and experience the investigator was interested in making a study of teen age girl's recreation and housing facilities. As a rural youth the investigator found that much of her recreation was dependent on the family, her friends who lived near by, and the facilities which were available at home. As her parents were aware of this, recreational equipment was provided and the house could be used for entertaining at all times, however, she was keenly aware of situations in the homes of friends who were not allowed freedom in the use of their house for recreation.
