In the middle of the 19th century, Irish immigrants arrived from their native country and settled in the heart of Monroe County near the present site of Georgetown. Poverty and political oppression had driven them to find a new land, yet they were heartbroken for to leave their homeland. The Irish settled in an area that reminded them of their mother country. With them they brought a rich Irish heritage, which is still felt and observed in the Georgetown area by the many descendants of these hearty pioneers who now call Georgetown home.
