dc.description.abstract This thesis focuses on the development of Pacific Grove, a small town on the central coast of California that while unique in its own right is representative of a much wider story. Like much of the West, Pacific Grove began as a utopian society, in this case one based largely on religion. Ultimately, however, while capitalism built the community, the interplay between religion and real estate speculation produced a vibrant town largely at peace in both worlds. en_US
