Aikenville is a city in the Dragoonasag state of Zinrico. It is the county seat and largest city in Aiken County. The city's nicknames are "A-Ville", "Mountain City, Zinrico", "Mountainburg", and "Mountaintown".

HistoryEdit

The Aikenville area was inhabited by the Zeiino Parkufos long before the English-speaking settlers arrived. The first English-speaking person to explore the area was John Zonapath in 1799. Zonapath decided to settle near the mountain that now bears his name. He wrote letters to his family and friends, urging them to move to the location where Aikenville now sits.

The Zonapaths and their friends moved to the area in 1800 and began the community now known as the city of Aikenville. The city was named "Zonapath City" from 1800 to 1804, when the name was changed to "West City". The city had this name until 1855, when the name was changed to "Aikenville". In the 1820s and 1830s, the town grew into a city. Two railroad companies began operating in the city in the mid-1860s. In the late-1800s, the first skyscraper in the city, the John Zonapath Tower, was built.

In 1901, Aikenville became Zinrico's largest city; it was surpassed by Zinrico City in 1910. In 1913, land was set aside for John Zonapath Park, which opened to the public in 1914.

In the 1950s, new neighborhoods were built in the city. It was not until the mid-2000s that Aikenville was served by a freeway; Dragoonasag Interstate Route 792 was completed in 2005 and now serves as a link from Aikenville to Zinrico City.
