George is situated about midway between Manhattan and Wamego on
Military Trail Road, overlooking the Kansas River, only a mile or so
south of four-lane Highway 24. Small new subdivisions are being built
nearby. Several old historic buildings are being renovated along Main
Street. Community activists have built a new, fully landscaped and equipped
park and boat landing along the river - the first new landing to be
built along the river in about 30 years! This landing allows canoeists,
kayakers and fishermen safe and convenient access to the river. The
"old highway" is often used by bicyclists for a beautiful
and quiet ride to Wamego. A nearby outdoor recreation center
adds to the recreational opportunities in the immediate area.
Many people living in or near St. George commute approximately
fifteen minutes to Manhattan or Wamego to work. The price of land and
real estate is still moderate. The Rock Creek School District which
serves the area is excellent.
The area surrounding St. George is currently characterized by mixed
agricultural and rural residential uses, with only a few commercial
establishments nearby. The St. George area will probably experience
considerable growth over the next decade. Nearby areas along the "middle
corridor" of Highway 24 will likely be in highest demand for commercial
and industrial purposes.
If you are a recreationist looking for a good river or bicycling experience,
a young family looking for a quiet place to live, or business person
seeking convenient and affordable business locations - St. George is
definitely worth your attention!
