octagon city

"Octagon city is a utopian settlement based on the twin ideals of anti-slavery and vegetarianism. It was organised in an octagonal subdivision pattern, used for its social and spiritual potency."

That happened in Kansas, in 1854. New Yorkers put an ad in the paper, and they all moved out there. From Towards Cosmopolis, by Leonie Sandercock.
