LaGrange (Cambridge, Maryland)
LaGrange known as La Grange Plantation or Meredith House, is a historic home located at Cambridge, Dorchester County, United States. It was built about 1760; the house is a 2 1⁄2-story Flemish bond brick house and is one of the few remaining Georgian houses in the town. Sun porches and a frame wing were added to the main house in the late early 20th centuries. Three outbuildings remain, including a late 19th-century dairy, an 18th-century smokehouse, a 20th-century garage. LaGrange was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980; the Dorchester County Historical Society owns the La Grange Plantation and operates it as an open museum of local history. The different buildings include the 1760 period furnished Meredith House, exhibits on local history, domestic life, antique transportation vehicles, tools used by a woodworker and blacksmith.

LaGrange County, Indiana
LaGrange County is a county located in the U. S. state of Indiana. As of 2010, the population was 37,128; the county seat is Indiana. The county is located in the Northern Indiana region known as Michiana and is about 55 miles east of South Bend, 105 miles west of Toledo, 175 miles northeast of Indianapolis; the area is well known for its large Amish population. For that reason, the county teams up with neighboring Elkhart County to promote tourism by referring to the area as Northern Indiana Amish Country. Over a third of the population of LaGrange County is Amish, it is home to the third largest Amish community in the United States, which belong to the Elkhart-LaGrange Amish affiliation; the first settlement of LaGrange County was founded about a half mile west of Lima in 1828. Over the next four years, settlers flocked to parts of Lima and Van Buren Townships. In 1832, LaGrange County was carved out of neighboring Elkhart County and established with Lima as the county seat; the town of LaGrange was platted in 1836 and settled in 1842 as the new county seat, closer to the center of the county.
Lima's name was changed to Howe in 1909. LaGrange was laid out and platted in 1836. LaGrange County's initial settlers were Yankee immigrants, to say, they were from New England and were descended from the English Puritans who settled that region in the colonial era, they were part of a wave of New England settlers moving west into what was the Northwest Territory after the completion of the Erie Canal. The original settlers in LaGrange County hailed from the Massachusetts counties of Worcester County, Suffolk County and Berkshire County, they were members of the Congregational Church, but as a result of the Second Great Awakening many became Baptists and many converted to Pentecostalism and Methodism. When they arrived in what is now LaGrange County, there was nothing but virgin forest and wild prairie, the New England settlers cleared roads, built farms, constructed churches, erected government buildings, established post routes; as a result of this migration, LaGrange County was culturally continuous with early New England culture for many years.
In 1837, the government removed Chief Shipshewana and the Potawatomi Tribe from the northwest corner of the county. Several years the Chief was allowed to return and died in Newbury Township in 1841. A town was abandoned because of lack of development. In 1844, the first Amish came from Pennsylvania to settle around the old town; the village continued to grow and the town of Shipshewana was platted nearby in 1899 and incorporated in 1916 in Newbury Township. LaGrange County was named after the home of Revolutionary War hero, the Marquis de la Fayette, outside of Paris, France. According to the 2010 census, the county has a total area of 386.70 square miles, of which 379.62 square miles is land and 7.08 square miles is water. The county is made up of rural farmland but some rolling hills and several lakes. St. Joseph County, Michigan Branch County, Michigan Steuben County Noble County Elkhart County I-80 / I-90 / Indiana Toll Road In recent years, average temperatures in LaGrange have ranged from a low of 14 °F in January to a high of 82 °F in July, although a record low of −28 °F was recorded in December 2000 and a record high of 104 °F was recorded in June 1988.
Average monthly precipitation ranged from 1.76 inches in February to 4.17 inches in June. As of the 2010 United States Census, there were 37,128 people, 11,598 households, 9,106 families residing in the county; the population density was 97.8 inhabitants per square mile. There were 14,094 housing units at an average density of 37.1 per square mile. The racial makeup of the county was 96.6% white, 0.3% black or African American, 0.3% Asian, 0.2% American Indian, 1.7% from other races, 0.8% from two or more races. Those of Hispanic or Latino origin made up 3.5% of the population. In terms of ancestry, 36.1% were German, 13.3% were American, 6.4% were Irish, 6.4% were English. Of the 11,598 households, 40.2% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 67.6% were married couples living together, 7.1% had a female householder with no husband present, 21.5% were non-families, 18.4% of all households were made up of individuals. The average household size was 3.17 and the average family size was 3.66.
The median age was 30.4 years. The median income for a household in the county was $47,697 and the median income for a family was $53,793. Males had a median income of $40,960 versus $29,193 for females; the per capita income for the county was $18,388. About 12.1% of families and 16.0% of the population were below the poverty line, including 23.5% of those under age 18 and 16.6% of those age 65 or over. 37% of the population of LaGrange County is Amish, as the county is home to the third largest Amish community in the United States and belong to the Elkhart-LaGrange Amish affiliation. This is reflected in the linguistic situation in the county: 28.45% of the population report speaking German, Pennsylvania German, or Dutch at home. 68.5% of the total population and 61.29% of the children in 5-17 age group used English as their home language, according to 2000 Census. The Amish languages were used by 35.77 % of the children. LaGrange
In celestial mechanics, the Lagrangian points are the points near two large bodies in orbit where a smaller object will maintain its position relative to the large orbiting bodies. At other locations, a small object would go into its own orbit around one of the large bodies, but at the Lagrangian points the gravitational forces of the two large bodies, the centripetal force of orbital motion, the Coriolis acceleration all match up in a way that cause the small object to maintain a stable or nearly stable position relative to the large bodies. There are five such points, labeled L1 to L5, all in the orbital plane of the two large bodies, for each given combination of two orbital bodies. For instance, there are five Lagrangian points L1 to L5 for the Sun-Earth system, in a similar way there are five different Lagrangian points for the Earth-Moon system. L1, L2, L3 are on the line through the centers of the two large bodies. L4 and L5 each form an equilateral triangle with the centers of the large bodies.
L4 and L5 are stable, which implies that objects can orbit around them in a rotating coordinate system tied to the two large bodies. Several planets have trojan satellites near their L5 points with respect to the Sun. Jupiter has more than a million of these trojans. Artificial satellites have been placed at L1 and L2 with respect to the Sun and Earth, with respect to the Earth and the Moon; the Lagrangian points have been proposed for uses in space exploration. The three collinear Lagrange points were discovered by Leonhard Euler a few years before Joseph-Louis Lagrange discovered the remaining two. In 1772, Lagrange published an "Essay on the three-body problem". In the first chapter he considered the general three-body problem. From that, in the second chapter, he demonstrated two special constant-pattern solutions, the collinear and the equilateral, for any three masses, with circular orbits; the five Lagrangian points are labeled and defined as follows: The L1 point lies on the line defined by the two large masses M1 and M2, between them.
It is the most intuitively understood of the Lagrangian points: the one where the gravitational attraction of M2 cancels M1's gravitational attraction. Explanation An object that orbits the Sun more than Earth would have a shorter orbital period than Earth, but that ignores the effect of Earth's own gravitational pull. If the object is directly between Earth and the Sun Earth's gravity counteracts some of the Sun's pull on the object, therefore increases the orbital period of the object; the closer to Earth the object is, the greater this effect is. At the L1 point, the orbital period of the object becomes equal to Earth's orbital period. L1 is 0.01 au, 1/100th the distance to the Sun. The L2 point lies on the line beyond the smaller of the two. Here, the gravitational forces of the two large masses balance the centrifugal effect on a body at L2. Explanation On the opposite side of Earth from the Sun, the orbital period of an object would be greater than that of Earth; the extra pull of Earth's gravity decreases the orbital period of the object, at the L2 point that orbital period becomes equal to Earth's.
Like L1, L2 is 0.01 au from Earth. The L3 point lies on the line defined beyond the larger of the two. Explanation Within the Sun-Earth system, the L3 point exists on the opposite side of the Sun, a little outside Earth's orbit and further from the Sun than Earth is; this placement occurs because the Sun is affected by Earth's gravity and so orbits around the two bodies' barycenter, well inside the body of the Sun. At the L3 point, the combined pull of Earth and Sun cause the object to orbit with the same period as Earth; the L4 and L5 points lie at the third corners of the two equilateral triangles in the plane of orbit whose common base is the line between the centers of the two masses, such that the point lies behind or ahead of the smaller mass with regard to its orbit around the larger mass. The triangular points are stable equilibria, provided that the ratio of M1/M2 is greater than 24.96. This is the case for the Sun–Earth system, the Sun–Jupiter system, and, by a smaller margin, the Earth–Moon system.
When a body at these points is perturbed, it moves away from the point, but the factor opposite of that, increased or decreased by the perturbation will increase or decrease, bending the object's path into a stable, kidney bean-shaped orbit around the point. In contrast to L4 and L5, where stable equilibrium exists, the points L1, L2, L3 are positions of unstable equilibrium. Any object orbiting at L1, L2, or L3 will tend to fall out of orbit, it is common to orbiting the L4 and L5 points of natural orbital systems. These are called "trojans". In the 20th century, asteroids discovered orbiting at the Sun–Jupiter L4 and L5 points were named after characters from Homer's Iliad. Asteroids at the L4 point, which leads Jupiter, are referred to as the "Greek camp", whereas those at the L5 point are referred to as the "Trojan camp". Other examples of natural objects orbiting at Lagrange points: The Sun–Earth L4 and L5 points contain interplanetary dust and at least one asteroid, 2010 TK7, detected in October 2010 by Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer and announced during July 2011.

La Grange, Illinois
The village of La Grange, a suburb of Chicago, is a village in Cook County, in the U. S. state of Illinois. The population was 15,550 at the 2010 census; the area around La Grange was first settled in the 1830s, when Chicago residents moved out to the west due to the rapid population increase in the city in the decade since its incorporation. The first settler, Robert Leitch, came to the area in 1830, seven years before the City of Chicago was incorporated. La Grange's location, at 13 miles from the Chicago Loop, is not considered far from the city by today's standards, but in that time the residents enjoyed the peace of rural life without much communication with urban residents; the village was incorporated on June 11, 1879. It was founded by Franklin Dwight Cossitt, born in Granby and raised in Tennessee, moved to Chicago in 1862 where he built a successful wholesale grocery business. In 1870, Cossitt purchased several hundred acres of farmland in Lyons Township, along the Chicago-Dixon Road, known today as Ogden Avenue.
Ogden Avenue, on the site of a defunct Native American trail, was referred to as the "Old Plank Road". Planks were stolen by settlers to be used as building material, which made traveling bumpy; when the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad came to town, La Grange was a milk stop called Hazel Glen. A few miles to the south, through present-day Willow Springs, the Illinois and Michigan Canal had emerged as a major shipping corridor, connecting Chicago and the Great Lakes with the Illinois and Mississippi rivers. Cossitt set out to build the ideal suburban village - laying out streets, planting trees, donating property for churches and schools, building quality homes for sale between $2,000-$8000 USD, he placed liquor restrictions in the land deeds he sold to prevent the village from becoming a saloon town. When Cossitt began his development, the area was served by a post office known as Kensington, but upon learning of another community with that name in Illinois, Cossitt decided to name his town in honor of La Grange, where he had been raised as a youth on an uncle's cotton farm.
To this day, Kensington remains the name of one of the village's major avenues. After the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 destroyed much of that city, thousands of its citizens sought new homes and opportunities far from the city's ills but within a convenient commute. La Grange was ideally situated to accommodate them. Telephones were first set up by Dr. George Fox in the 1880s for quick communication between his home office and a drug store, enabling him to order prescriptions to be delivered by buggy in a moment's notice. Growing to 52 lines in 1894, it increased twofold to 120 by the next year, surged to 2,346 by 1921. There was a large spike in population around 1890 when the village was still young, while the population has been declining since the'70s. La Grange is located at 41°48′29″N 87°52′24″W, about 13 miles west of Chicago; the village is flat, only deviating from the elevation of 645 feet by at most ten feet. La Grange is surrounded by incorporated places of similar sizes on all sides except to the South West, where the generously-named La Grange Highlands are.
According to the 2010 census, La Grange has a total area of all land. Two major railroad tracks run through the village, including the Burlington Northern Santa Fe, the CSX/Indiana Harbor Belt lines; some 14,000 years ago, the land under La Grange sat on the western shore of Lake Chicago, predecessor to Lake Michigan. The prehistoric shoreline today is delineated by Bluff Avenue, a north-south street on the village's east side; as of the census of 2000, there were 15,608 people, 5,624 households, 4,049 families residing in the village. The population density was 6,220.7 people per square mile This is due to the Village Plan aiming to prevent overcrowding and to keep population density at a level consistent with the quality of life envisioined by Franklin Cossitt. There were 5,781 housing units at an average density of 2,304.1 per square mile. The racial makeup of the village was 91.02% White, 6.02% African American, 1% Asian, 0.09% Native American, 0.02% Pacific Islander, 0.99% from other races, 0.86% from two or more races.
Hispanic or Latino people of any race comprised 3.66% of the population. The top five ancestries reported in La Grange as of the 2000 census were Irish, Polish and English. There were 5,624 households out of which 37.9% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 60.3% were married couples living together, 9.2% had a female householder with no husband present, 28.0% were non-families. 24.5% of all households were made up of individuals and 9.7% had someone living alone, 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.67 and the average family size was 3.23. In the village, the population was spread out with 28.5% under the age of 18, 4.8% from 18 to 24, 29.4% from 25 to 44, 23.8% from 45 to 64, 13.5% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 38 years. For every 100 females, there were 94.2 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 87.4 males. The median income for a household in the village was $80,342, the median income for a family was $95,554. Males had a median income of $62,030 versus $41,260 for females.
The per capita income for the village was $34,887. About 3.2% of families and 4.0% of the population were below the poverty line, including 4.3% of those under age 18 and 4.4% of those age 65 or over. La Grange is the mailing address for the headquarters of El
