George Hamilton 1787-1836

A shrewd businessman and prosperous landowner, Hamilton laid out a village plot at the Head of the Lake in 1815 that in time became the city that bears his name. When the settlement was designated the administrative centre of the Gore District, Hamilton donated land for the court house.
