Our History


In 1995, a strategic planning and public consultation exercise was coordinated by the Corporation of St. George’s to produce a definitive development plan for the Town. The outcome was The St. George’s Heritage Plan: “Bringing History to Life.”

The plan focused on restoring and preserving the unique history and heritage of the Town, and establishing a dynamic and inspired vision for the future.

To help make the Plan become a reality, an independent, non-profit body, The St. George’s Foundation, was formed to work in partnership with the local community, Government, and the Corporation of St. George’s.  The objectives were two-fold:  to act as a catalyst for change, and fundraising.
