Looking around Georgetown at the extraordinary buildings and tall, strong Live Oak trees lining the streets, it's easy to tell that this city has a rich history. Some historians say Georgetown became the first U.S. settlement when Europeans arrived in 1526. The colony was short-lived in large part because of fever epidemic and slave revolts. However, it was reestablished in 1729 as an area that produced indigo and rice, cash crops that were overshadowed by lumber production following the U.S. Civil War.
Georgetown also served as a seaport for supply shipments to bolster the American troops during the Revolutionary War. Over the years, several notable dignitaries have visited the historic city, including several U.S. presidents. Today, the city's Historic District, site of the original 1729 street grid, is home to more than 50 structures listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
