Continuing down Route 2 we come across some small towns, then arrive in Truro, a town of around 3500 sims.

hamsterTK - Thank you so so so much. I was about to give up on this CJ and start anew, but I am going to continue thanks to your kind words. I have actually never been to Cleveland, Peterburg County is based on the grimy side of the towns and cities of Nova Scotia, Canada. Again, thank you.

In this update, the focus will be on the towns going south down Route 2, the old main highway for the county. Because of the contstruction of Highway 102, Route 2 has fallen into disuse, meaning many of the buisinesses have closed up shop for good.

Farms

nottheboss - Thank you very much :thumb:

Peterburg County was born from farms in the 19th century, so why don't we take a look at the many farms that still remain...

Audrey km - Thank you very much ^_^

Here in Peterburg County it isn't all just concrete jungles and housing. The Culiver River is a good example. It is the biggest river in the area and when the county was first being settled, it was the main source of water, transport and energy for the people. On Preston Island in the centre of the river, you can find Fort Dayton, now a museum. Visited by thousands of tourists a year, it is a popular spot for sightseeing.

The capital city of Peterburg County is the relatively small Canderbrooke. Home to only 15 000 sims, it is the centre of government for it's centrality.

Transport

Penguin1634 - Thank you ! Im so glad you like it :]

Connecting Peterburg City and Warner is highway 102, splitting the county in half. There are a few small towns littered along the highway, but most people here live in very urban areas. The biggest town along highway 102 is the Township of Harris.

Marshall

Mikeaut1 - Thank you :D It took maaaaany hours of planning to get the city to look JUST right !

Zulu2065 - Thanks for commenting ! I appreciate all of your kind words about Peterburg County ^_^

The oldest city in Peterburg county is Marshall, previously known as Bielefeld. It was the first city settled in the county by German immigrants in 1764, hence all of the german architecture dotting the downtown area.
