New London
New London was first founded in 1719, in 1720 there were 77 people living in the colony, but it was going to get a lot bigger in the future.

Here is a photo of New London in 1720:

it's the first time i see an old town projeect and is a good idea. You are going to model it through time until nowadays, aren't you? because that would be interesting. Only one thing, those mountains on the background doesn't look very good, they are like green cliffs, maybe you could make the smoother or smaller. Im waiting for updates!

I did my best on the mountains, if i did any mre detailed it will crash my computer. maybe i will try it without terrain.

Henry Thompson moved here in 1816, when natives attacked his town. unfortunately his family was the only one that survived. so he moved up the river until he reached this spot

In 1817 Andrew Peterson moved here to avoid the natives, he built a large barn that he and his neighbor shared. (He had the bigger field :rolleyes:)

Henry Thompson had 1 wife & 4 kids, Andrew Peterson had 1 wife & 6 kids.

in 1824 Jason Marksman, a famous archer, traveled along the road, and when he saw that the road ended here, he decided to build an inn, The Londonium Inn.
James Rockefeller from the famous oil family, bought a large parcel of land, and put the people from the inn to work.

The View from Rockefeller's Farm.

The town is so far away that it looks tiny.

In 1729, Thomas Henry built the first store in town, on opening day 3 people showed. It was the busiest day he had ever seen, since New York that is.

The reason why I am not continuing is that I using a different computer.
