FTA: The Olmsted Brothers firm, laid out a 50-year master plan in 1917 that called for a garden community at the factory gate. A second 50-year plan was developed in consultation with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation in 1977, 10 years after the first plan had finished.

Interesting, thanks for sharing.

The Olmsted archives are particularly rich with photos and plans for this project.

Great old photos:
