Think about all the little counties that dot metro Atlanta for one. each one needs a county seat so that's at least 20+ historic cores. then many of these counties had several small cities connected by railroad. a lot different than houston which mass annexed many of the small towns around it, then didnt care to help the old town areas (such as Spring), and others were demolished for flood control reservoirs like Addicks and Barker. on the flip side, this has made Houston's urban core one of the larger ones in the US that continues to connect and fill in every year.
