Located on the island of Bermuda, St George was founded in 1612 and was the first English settlement on Bermuda. St George actually is the third oldest settlement in North and South America behind St John, Newfoundland and Jamestown, Virginia. St George was the capital of Bermuda, but was moved to Hamilton in 1815.
St George is significantly smaller than Hamilton, but some small cruise ships can make port. The town also boasts some older buildings including the old State House built in 1620.
