Abstract

This work highlights the institutional nature of spatial relationships that restricted cropping choices and patterned both the landscape and work behaviors of farm families in the late nineteenth-century Illinois corn-belt. It accomplishes this through a intra regional comparison of agricultural production statistics among native-stock and German-American farmers and a study of their varied cultural approaches to gendered labor and the built environment.
