Saint George History

Saint George

Many people believe that St. George was named after a Union Army Officer by the name of Phillip St. George Cooke who is said to have donated a good share of equipment and wagons to the Mormon settlement of "Dixie". It was called Dixie because it was a center for growing cotton which was processed at the nearby Washington Cotton Mill, and that cotton reminded many of the settlers who originally lived in the south of Dixie.
