I don’t know why this town did not grow and thrive. They were clearly years ahead of their time.  Putting your town’s name for air travellers to see is, in my opinion, the most important thing a town government can do.  How many times have you looked out the window of an airplane,  noting a beautiful vista, only to never find out what city you were flying over ?
