The Resettlement Administration, a New Deal program which supported farming projects, established the community on the shore of Lake Dick in 1936. The administration built the community's buildings in the next two years and relocated 80 farming families from throughout Arkansas to the community. Unlike most Resettlement Administration farming communities, which divided farmland among their residents, Lake Dick was a cooperative farming project; families jointly participated in producing crops on community farmland according to a work schedule. Roughly one-third of the community's original buildings are still in place; most of the others, particularly the houses, have been relocated to other nearby settlements.

The community was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
