Towns

Gilbertville

Gilbertville is foundet 1588 at the mouth of the Magnolia River on several small hills in the swampy area. Because this place was better sheltered from hurricans as Fort Gumryn, Gilbertville was choosen as capital-city for the Oakhill-colony and later the state.

Gilbertville has five inner suburbs,

  • Old Town: First houses are build at the Church hill around the St. Johns church
  • Flatland,
  • West-Side,
  • North-Hill,
  • South-side

More outside are this suburbs:

  • Tarephia
  • Duckhunters Hill - urbanisized in the 1950ies til 1970ies with cheaper appartement houses
  • Vatonga Park - urbanisized in the 1970ies
  • Bramblecarses
  • Vapalonghany - urbanisized in the 2010ies. Some older houses with great gardens still are at Bletchley Way. This suburb in the future will be expanded to the south, til the urbanisation of Gilbertville reached the village of Bletchley. Then at Winterhorn Way will be a new station of the light railway. Further planes are made, to prolongate this railway more to the western part of the city with new stations at Liberty Avenue and Northern Way.

Fort Gumryn

Sir Arnold Gumryn founded the Fort in 1545 to shelter this part of the coastline. Here later grow the first town of the Oakhill area, til 1588 Gilbetville was fonded and 1609 become the capital of the colony. Nevertheless Fort Gumryn today is the second greatest town of the state of Oakhill and harbour of the state.

Famous is the village of Cape Magnolia at th end of the peninsula in the south of the town with only 38 houses, but residence of some famous painters and writers and some film-stars of the Federal States.

Bus lines in Orlando

Orlando

The first Settlement was founded 1633 by John Decatour north of the river between Boulevard and School Street, at 1703 the town grow further to the west to Wall Street - today the "Old Town". In the 1860ies the "New Town" was designed with a rectangled street-grid. In the 1910ies on the area of the great Lisseton Gardens the horse racing course come in use - the only one in Oakhill state. Last urbanisation is the Millenium City in the norhwest of the old town, realisized from 1996 to 2011.

Long years was planed, to build a branch line of the railway Gilbertville - Oxlake to Orlando. This branch of 8.75 km from Horthing to Orlando then was opened 1874. With the upcoming bus-service the Orlando branch was closed in 1958, the rails are take off 1969. Til this time the right of way for a railway lays in the landscape and til this time discussions are made, to open again this railway-branch. The great success of the light railway between Gilbertville and Fort Gumryn give wings to the plan, to reopen the Orlando line in roundabout 4 years. Today instead of the rails the way is used as cyclepath.
