South Burlington was chartered on November 22, 1864 by the Vermont State Legislature.&nbsp; The Legislature incorporated the City of Burlington from what was then the village of Burlington and about 10,000 acres of the original New Hampshire Grant town of Burlington. Concurrently, the remainder of the original town was designated the Town of South Burlington, which, in turn, became Vermont's newest city by Act of Incorporation in 1971.

Brief History

St. George was chartered on August 18, 1763 and 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]
