History:  

GEORGETOWN, a city in George Township, was incorporated as a village on March 10, 1904. Old Georgetown, when it was established as a trading post of the Hudson's Bay Company in 1859, was first named Selkirk, in honor of Lord Selkirk, and renamed in honor of Sir George Simpson, governor of Hudson's Bay Company; it was abandoned in September 1862 during the Dakota War and was reestablished in 1864. The village consisted of several sheds for defense, a warehouse, a hotel, a dwelling house, a traders' store, and a guardhouse, the site becoming a stock farm in 1873 and abandoned by 1875. Although mail was distributed earlier by the trading post manager, the first post office in the county was established at Old Georgetown in 1864 with Randolph M. Probstfield as postmaster. The present Georgetown, established in 1883 two miles southeast by the Moorhead Northern Railroad, had 640 acres platted by Soloman G. Comstock and Almond A. White, with the post office in C. B. Hill's store; Hill was county sheriff from 1891 to 1895. The township received its name from the trading post.
