To construct a town suitable for housing 4,000 workers of his new Long-Bell Lumber Company Mill, owner R.A. Long consulted some of the leading planning and development experts of his current home, Kansas City, MO. Kansas City had a core of very significant planners and landscape architects on whom Long could depend, including the progressive developer, J.C. Nichols, the landscape architect and city planner, George B. Kessler, and the distinguished landscape architecture firm of Hare and Hare. Together with the Seattle architects Schack, Young and Myers and John R. Nevins, this team created the largest city plan for any city outside Washington, DC, in the early 1920s.
