  • Be sure to look at the official government website for your town or city to see if there is a description of the founding and development of the city.
  • Check to see if there is an economic development agency for your city (or region, if your town is too small to have its own agency).
  • Local public library, museum, and historical society websites may also be useful starting points for background information on the founding and development of your town or city.
