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.

St. George is located within the northern end of the Mojave Desert at 2,860 feet above sea level and the average annual temperature is approximately 61. With Hot summers and extremely mild winters, St. George is also known as a winter haven for what the 45,000 locals like to call "Snow Birds" (tourists who come to St. George to warm up away from the snow). St. George is also home to the four year Dixie State College.
