Auteurs :
MITCHELL, R.D.
HOFSTRA, W.R.

Description :
Town-based settlements were first developed in the northern Shenandoah Valley in the Virginia backcountry. Three phases of settlement evolution occurred. A well-developed central-place system was finally evident by the 1790s. Current settlement theories have provided incomplete explanations of the founding of individual towns and of differential town growth.
