Brief History[edit | edit source]

St. George was chartered on August 18, 1763 but was not organized until 1813..  St. George is so small that many think it was originally a gore, but it was, in fact, granted as a town. The name apparently alludes to the King George himself.

In its heyday, St. George thrived on sheep raising, until the bottom fell out of the market. Today, a cluster of houses, a cemetery, an old one-room schoolhouse, a mobile home park and a small industrial park identify St. George village near where Route 2A ends at Route 116.

The 2010 US Census shows St. George had a population of 674. [1] [2]
