Reynoldstown is located in Reynoldsland's West Coastal Plains region. The nation's three major rivers, the Reynolds, Loveport, and Barrier, meet near Hope Park.

HistoryEdit

The city now known as Reynoldstown was founded in 1891 as Jonnic City by George Parkans and a group of explorers. In 1895, construction on the Jonnic Legislative Building began; the building was finished in 1901. In 1900, Stuart John Venoill expanded the community by building more houses. In the early 1900s, more people moved to the city from other English-speaking countries. In 1920, Jonnic Harbor was opened for business. In 1922, Jerry T. Koumes and his construction crews began building the nation's first skyscraper, the Koumes Tower. In 1931, the first hotel in the city opened in East Jonnic City, now East Reynoldstown. The longest-serving prime minister in the nation's history, Frouth Markes, took office on January 7, 1938, and he served as the prime minister of Jonnic until January 7, 1957, when Kyle Denner took over as prime minister. In the late 1940s, Paul Jordson, a resident of nearby Karbury, presented a plan to then-mayor Al Carvelton for the construction of new roads in the city and new bridges across the city's three rivers. As part of the plan, Jonnic National Route 1 and Jonnic National Route 3 were built through the city, and the Venoill Bridge was built along Route 1 across the Loveport River. In the 1960s, two new skyscrapers were built in the downtown area, and five new hotels were built. In the early 1970s, two parks, Reynolds Park (then called Jonnic Park) and Venoill Park, were created within the city. In the 1980s, the city's first subway, the EastWay, began operating. In the 1990s, the city's name was changed from Jonnic City to Reynoldstown when the island nation was renamed Reynoldsland, and the city became the nation's capital city. In 2002, the city became the capital of the newly created Reynoldsland Capital District, and remained the nation's capital.
