George West, the county seat of Live Oak County, was named for George Washington West, who established his ranch in Live Oak County in the early 1900s. In 1912 he donated his name, a townsite, $100,000, and 13 miles of railroad right-of-way through his ranch to establish a town on a railroad. The San Antonio, Uvalde, and Gulf Railroad laid the tracks in 1913, and George West was founded on September 22, 1914.
