Zion City in Illinois is commonly considered historical for its utopian beginnings under the leadership of the Reverend John A. Dowie.

Jan Jansen argues that Zion City is historical for much more...

Zion City is the first true Garden City built on the Ebenezer Howard idea in the United States. 

The story of the Battle For The Garden City, (or battle for Zion), is the history of a city-building event in the first half of the twentieth-century and the dynamics that transpired, culminating in the modern "Garden City" of Zion, Illinois.  Zion was totally pre-planned before building began in 1901 and is planned according to the Ebenezer Howard (1894) idea known as the Garden City.  The city of Letchworth in England, near London has historically been believed to be the first Garden City.  "Not so," says Jansen, "Zion, Illinois is the first Garden City built in the world."
