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.
