This chapter presents a case study of ethnic succession process in Arbordale, Illinois. Arbordale was settled by German farmers in the mid-nineteenth century and came to be dominated by the Mexicanos in the 1990s, which constituted 35 percent of the population by 2000. This chapter describes the community change with the presence of the Mexicanos in terms of space, place, social resources, cross-age relations. It also provides tables showing the changes in the demographic and employment profiles of Arbordale from 1980 to 2000.
