Most of the property lines are about 5 acres due to a ruling to manage all property purchases in 1930. Commercial development was disregarded as a part of the ruling. During that time, residents wanted to keep the natural landscape in tact to retain their country living. Another agreement in their guidelines prohibited street lights, lane lines, sidewalks, and street curbs. Even though the village is incorporated now and developed, proof of the policy guidelines can still be seen today.
