This study examines the historical evolution of a late nineteenth century planned community in the USA: Winter Park, Florida. Much research has been done on the genesis of planned communities, emphasizing their nature as alternatives to patterns of post-war suburbanization. Less work has been done in the area of analysing the ways in which planned landscapes and the social relations they engender persist over time. This study maps this socio-spatial persistence in the case of Winter Park showing the ways in which elements of social organization that were prominent in the town's late nineteenth century genesis persisted and/or changed over its first century of inhabitation.
