Each chapter starts with a brief introduction to the history and geography of the state, followed by place chronologies in paragraph form arranged alphabetically by place name.... Each entry includes the basic founding date and incorporation date of the profiled city or town. Arrivals of explorers or groups of immigrants, disasters, battles, founding dates of colleges and other institutions, and birth dates of notable persons are among the significant historical events included. Also included are county formations and county seat moves, construction dates of railroads, and landmarks such as airports, bridges, and dams."--Jacket of 2005 hardcover edition.
