The Midlander (Booth Tarkington, 1924)

The younger son of a nouveau riche Midwestern family has crazy ideas about the future of his small city and fights to be a part of its growth despite being laughed at by everyone. His grandmother cuts him out of her will when he marries a New Yorker rather than the neighbor girl and her judgement eventually proves correct. Third part of the Growth trilogy.
