Abstract

A study of the original survey records of town plats in three southwestern Michigan counties, which shows a wide range of town and town-square designs, although all the towns were laid out in the mid-1830s. Some towns were to be square, others linear, and others were altered to permit water-driven mills. Town squares with roads crossing through were often altered later, suggesting that those who planned the towns may have had ideas at odds with the settlers. - (SLD)
