The Urban Fabric of Orwigsburg


As seen in the diagram above, Orwigsburg’s block structure can be broken down into lots, blocks and streets. The original block size is 16 Rods by 11 Rods. The original lot sizes were two rods wide, thus creating eight lots per block. Later as development grew down Warren Street the grain of the blocks turned and faced the main thoroughfare. The blocks and lots are then organized around a network of A and B streets.
