All About St. George, Utah
The St. George area was originally inhabited by the Virgin River Anasazi and later the Southern Paiute tribe. The first Europeans to arrive were in the Dominguez-Escalante expedition in 1776, and St. George was founded as a cotton mission in 1861. The town was established for the purpose of producing cotton locally in Utah so that the Latter-Day Saint settlers wouldn’t need to rely on obtaining it from the Confederacy. Eventually, cotton was abandoned as the main driver of the economy in the area, but St. George thrived anyway because railroads brought tourists eager to visit Zion National Park.
A number of interesting natural formations are within the city limits of St. George from the Jurassic, Triassic, and Permian periods. The reason so much of the rock is red in appearance is that it is full of iron oxide (the same substance as rust on metal). You can see the red hills of the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve to the north of town, hundreds of petroglyphs along the Tempi’po’op Trail in the Santa Clara Reserve, and even lava flows to the east and west of the historic area of the city.
