St George

It's so fun to learn things....

This is the man St George is named after...

George Smith.

And, yes, that is a wig he is wearing on his head; he also had false teeth.

But, he was a good good man, so the town was named after him although he didn't actually participate in the settling of this lovely place.  He helped in calling the 300 families who were sent to settle the harsh, dry valley.

Thanks, George; I love this place named after YOU!
