History

Local name for the present village on the island. According to Elliott (1881, p. 19) the first settlement on St. George I. was in 1786, located on the north coast, at Staraya Artil, about 5 miles west of the present location. A short time later a village was established at Zapadni Bay on the southwest coast of the island. In the 1880 Census Ivan Petroff listed "Saint George," population 88 (1884, p. 23); population 92 in 1890.
