By the time the original developers and builders of Town 'n' Country had built their last house, the area covered more than 2,000 acres and stretched over three miles from Memorial Highway on the south to north of Waters Avenue. In this area, nearly 8,000 single-family homes and townhouses were built from 1958 to 1978 by LaMonte-Shimberg.[4]
