History of Chrisville

Sign in to follow this  


Chrisville was La Ciudad de Las Montanas, as many would say. The Native Gatelandians that lived here centuries before present day citizens, lived here and thought the mountains as protection from Northern invaders. The early Gateland people first settled in what is today, Chrisvile for that very reason. There was no protection from the south yet that was no problem since evidence shows that the people of the south were related and worked together as one and eventually decided to move into Chrisville also. Recent evidence shows that Ciudad de Los Volcanos was the first civilzation in the region, which is contrary to the idea that Chrisville was. The early natives left the city due to civil wars within tribes, foreign invaders, but what made the final decision was the big volcanic eruption that occurred and people left the city for good. Ciudad did not become an official city until centuries later. So the main Gateland tribes moved south and while some moved into what is today Filipo, Jellyville, and Browntown,the majority of Gateland's early native tribes moved and finally settled down in what is today Chrisville. The mountains, the beautiful fresh green flat land that was used for growing crops since the soil was very nutrient. The nice weather. They spread out within the city,while the warriors lived near the borders of the city, everyone else lived within the city and prospered for years. The city became the biggest settlement in the region and then many of the tribes living in smaller communties in the Filipo area decided to venture out.

They went to even modern civilizations outside of the Gateland region and told of Gateland to many people and that was when non-Gatelandians began visiting Gateland and it became a wonder for the world. Many poeple flocked here but found no big civilazations and then they heard about Chrisville and once they visited Chrisville the non-Gatelandians fell in love with the city.

Once they decided to live there, they worked together and lived among the native tribe until they finally wanted to rule the city for them and so they arrested the leader, Xanoc, and took control of the city. Through many uprisings and small battles, the tribe lost, but other tribes heard about the fights and fought alongside the native Chrisville tribe and actually was close to winning a war until the non-Gatelandians put together a treaty saying that they will remain in control but will be open to the tribe with love and care and so it was for years until a generation later when Zack Newbie tried to be a dictator in the city and discriminated against the tribes with unfair laws and treatment. He was ousted and for the first time a Gatelandian tribe member became ruler of Chrisville by the name of Tulmec Xanoc, a grandson of the once-leader Xanoc the 1st.

That was when they further expanded and witnessed the 3 Towers which is located in southeast Chrisville where the new middle-class neighborhoods and schools are in the present-day. The 3 Towers are three natural land trees that are as tall as a 7-story building. They are not common trees because they do not have the branches or leaves on them, they are very unique and is another stop for tourists that travel through the city. The natives thought the bare trees to be some sort of communication device to the heavens. Some also believed it to be a portal to other "places" and to the "star people." Many dances, and ceremonies occurred here. They say the tallest tree, on each solstice, aligns just right with the Sirius constellation.

Old tales tell of how the star people actually came down and spoke with the old ancestors and that life started here centuries ago...

Who knows, but you can visit this spot, and also drive through the biggest tree and go to the gift shop there.

This was about the time many non-Gatelandians began settling all in the Gateland region, into Ciudad de Los Volcanos all the way down to Chrisville! and remained there to the present day! That is also why Chrisville remains the most diverse city in the region also.

Once Chrisville hit the 163,000 mark , in more modern history, they went through a great depression and many people left the city and the city also lost its charma and popularity. Mayor Gatropolis of Ciudad de Los Volcanos stepped in and helped Mayor Ulibarri and together tehey revitalized the city into what it is today.
