Description: 

As part of the growth of the town of Jefferson, a number of "new subdivisions" with names like "Fairfield or Longwood or Halcyon Acres" are built on lots "which had once been the lawn or back yard or kitchen garden of the old residences" (196). The "new minute glass-walled houses set as neat and orderly and antiseptic as cribs in a nursery ward" are ranged around "the old obsolete columned houses" of an earlier day (196).
