Georgetown [†] is in the eastern part of the township and was named for George Sykes. Sykes was a Quaker who worked as a surveyor, and served in the U. S. Congress from 1834 to 1848. Georgetown was once called Foolstown, named after a man who bankrupted himself building a mansion, the Foolstown House, which still stands today.
