Colonist purchased 20 shares of stock at $30 per share, which entitled him to 20) of land and a town lot, in 1896. He was to clear the land of sagebrush and plant apple trees. The town was platted with a horseshoe shape with its open end facing to the north, toward the railroad and the river. Homes were too built on the street side and the balance of the acre for garden and pasture for the family cow and the driving team. A park was planted with grass and shade trees. Plymouth Avenue, the main street and principal business thoroughfare, was surveyed (16 feet off the section line) down the center of the horseshoe from the railroad on the north through the Boulevard on the south. The community was at first called the New Plymouth Farm Village and was governed by a colony board of directors until it incorporated as a village in 1908, dropping the last two words in the name. It was designated a city in 1948.
