An acre is a measurement of land, so there is no defined shape. However, going back thousands of years when we were all farmers. A traditional Acre was long and narrow; reduced the number of times the plough had to be turned. A traditional Acre was a Furlong; meaning Furrows length (220 Yards or 660 Feet) long by a Chain (22 Yards or 66 Feet) wide. So 1 square Furlong (todays' city block) is 10 Acres. 8 Furlongs to a Mile. An Acre is 43,560 square feet. Acre comes from the old English word meaning "open field."

The most standard shape for an acre is one furlong by one chain, or 660 feet by 66 feet. To find the linear measurements of other rectangular acres, just divide 43,560 by the number of feet you want on one side. A square-shaped acre would then be about 208.7 by 208.7 feet (because 208.7 x 208.7 = ~43,560). An acre 100 feet wide would be 435.6 feet long (100 x 435.6 = 43,560) and an acre 1 foot wide would be 43,560 feet long.
