George West, Texas

George West is near the center of Live Oak County and was named for its founder, George Washington West. West, a rancher, set out to build a town on the site of his ranch. He built a courthouse, school, highways, bridges, waterworks, light plant and a hotel. George West became the seat of Live Oak County in 1919.

The town is chiefly a retail center and shipping point for the surrounding ranch and farm area. The area is highlighted by excellent hunting and fishing. George West is designated as the Storytelling Capital of Texas by the State Legislature, and the annual Storytelling Festival is held the first weekend in November.
