I love reading the history of old small towns. Is it possible to create a new town today if you aren't a huge wealthy corporation (a la Disney)? How did people do it back in the day. You know, "Smithville KS was named after the founder, Joe Smith". How did Joe Smith found the town without oodles of money to do roads, etc? I assume the land was just free from the government. I know this seems like a silly question but are we done with the era of creating new towns?
