History:  

LAKE GEORGE Township has a large lake at its center, which was thus named by Glazier in 1881 for his brother, a member of his first expedition to Lake Itasca, in July of that year. A post office in section 16 began as Yola, in section 5, in 1903, and changed to the present name in 1933.
