George, Washington

Field review by the editors.

George, Washington

"George" was created in the 1950s by a shoe salesman and pharmacist named Charlie Brown, who bought the land from the government for $100,000. He had a sense of humor, but his city has wrestled ever since with just how far to take the joke. The first business in town was Martha's Inn, and the world's largest cherry pie is baked in town every July 4th. But Washington-worthy tributes are as scant as The Father of Our Country's non-wooden teeth. There's a large, bronze bust of Washington, lit at night, next to the gas station, and a picture of him on the water tower. Some of the town's streets are named for Washington state cherry varieties. And the flagpole outside the community center has a hatchet on top. But that seems to be it.
