Did You Know?

Better known as New Enclosedfarmshire!

What’s my name again?

A couple of cartographers named Stephan Hormes and Silke Peust conducted an in-depth study of the ancient, literal names of townships and countries around the world. What they discovered was pretty interesting, and worth a peek! They found that, naturally, most places were named for the natural formations surrounding them…so when do we start calling our state New Enclosed Farmshire? Check our their maps here!
