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!

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

It's good to see a timeline city in here, they're always interesting. I like the effort you put in the stories and the people who populate the city.

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.

Since you seem to like this city I will rebuild it, from 1812.
The reason why I am not continuing is that I using a different computer.
