Rules to live by
How did a planned community where almost nothing went as planned eventually succeed?
In interviews, historians, planners and residents — original settlers and later arrivals — agreed on several explanations that are pertinent today as Americans again refocus the American dream. Phrased as rules, they include:
Make a plan to connect people
Take a risk nothing fazed them. They were adventurers
Keep the faith
Stick together When we needed something, we turned to each other
The entire town is on the National Register of Historic Places although some of the original Modernist-style cinderblock houses have been modified with pitched roofs, second floors and artificial siding.
