GEORGE MEMORIAL CEMETERY AND FREEDOM ROCK

A “Freedom Rock” was placed in this town’s memorial and is part one of 99 painted military rocks displayed in counties across Iowa. Illustrated on the rock are images of an eagle, American Flag and men representing five branches of the military. The artist painted a lone soldier standing outside the train depot on his way to war. This soldier represents Jack Sauter, of George, IA, who was killed in WWI. The Freedom Rock is located beside the town’s railroad depot on the north edge of town.
