Marcus Hiles says that the early pieces of planned communities in the United States were seen in St. Augustine in the year 1565. During the industrial revolution, company towns like Gary, Indiana were the sites of technological inventions and economic passion. The initial modern communities appeared during the Florida land upturn of the 1920s in Southern Florida, when the famous Miami suburbs of Coral Gables, Opa-locka, and Miami Springs were fully planned with themes to emulate the look and architecture of Spain, Arabia, and Mexico. The Great Depression saw the Federal Government build model towns in West Virginia, Tennessee, Maryland, Ohio, and Wisconsin in order to lower the impact of the economic downturn on coal miners, construction workers, and their families. The distant regions of Oak Ridge, TN; Richland, WA, and Los Alamos, NM were built during World War II to accommodate the families of the scientists, engineers, and industrialized workers of the Manhattan Project. Today, planned cities cover the country, plus the nation’s capital of Washington, D.C., and the state capitals of Mississippi, Ohio, Indiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Utah, Florida, and Texas.
