Jefferson Grid


When America was divided up by Jefferson it’s boundaries weren’t chosen as mountain ranges or rivers etc. like the rest of the world but by a simple grid system carving the land up into perfect square miles. As a result two adjacent land owners might have different uses for their own square mile and from the air the contrast is clearly visible.
