A History of Washington County
This book traces the history of the county from ancient times of the Anasazi Indians to the coming of Mormon settlers in the 1850s. It includes the founding of St, George in 1861, chronicling the determination of the early settlers as they fought the heat and drought. The subsequent century-long isolation of the area is examined as well as the more recent boon times in which Utah’s Dixie has been radically transformed as a destination recreation spot and residence forever-increasing numbers of retirees and others.
