Located in the southeastern part of the state of Utah and a city in Washington County, Ste. George sits on the Virgin River which is situated near the Arizona border. The area was first settled and was developed as a cotton-growing center by a group of Mormon in 1861. It was in Ste. George where the first Mormon temple was erected. Ste. George is the heart of Utah’s “Dixie”, a region in the state wherein it was largely settled by Southerners and was noted for their fruit and vegetable growing, and poultry raising. Because of the city’s proximity to the Dixie National Forest and of Zion National Park, St. George became a center for winter visitors and for retirees.
