Brigham used Smith’s “Plat of the City of Zion” to lay out the city along the lines of the cardinal points of the compass. The success of the Plat led to the construction of hundreds of new buildings by the Mormons, across Salt Lake City. In Riverside, Illinois, Fredrick Law Olmsted, famous for designing the New York Central Park, brought his artistry to one of the first planned suburbs in America. In his design of Riverside, he broke away from the conventional grid pattern and made a street block and lock pattern, which was inspired by the curvilinear nature of the Des Plaines River.

Their culture was important to the development of several later tribes from the area of the Four Corners (Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Arizona) in the modern United States.

He writes, “God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand straining, leveling tempests and floods; but he cannot save them from fools,-only Uncle Sam can do that.” (Paragraph 16).
