the Town Square was a scrubby area strewn with rocks and sage-brush. Often, one would see elk bunched up with the town cows grazing in the square.

In 1932, as part of a nation-wide movement to honor his 200th birthday, the square was named George Washington Memorial Park. The American Legion planted trees and grass. From 1953 to 1969, the Rotary Club built elk antler arches on each corner of the square.

Presently, in May of each year an antler auction is held in the square. Revenue from the auction is used for the winter feeding program at the National Elk Refuge. In exchange for collecting hundreds of shed antlers each spring, the Boy Scouts of American receives part of the proceeds to fund its local program.
