There is a great abbey which took its present form during the seventeenth century that,now houses the municipal services. Its story and that of the town it has created, are rich. It can evoke great characters who were the players: It's Jean Racine who had the idea to write litigants, one of his comedy work, because the ending of a trialbetween a religious possession income Georgeois St., is still Jean Baptiste Lully, the son of musician and abbot of St. George. These are the powerful families ofMontbazon of Bautru, the Tremouille, who successively possessed this jewel in the territory of the commune, which is the castle of Serrant.

In the 1530s, Pean de Brie who wanted a new castle, is started which is behind the castle we see today.
Today the castle is owned by the Prince and Princess de Merode that descend fromthe Trémoïlle.
The apartments are beautifully furnished. Sumptuous Flemish tapestries adorn thelarge dining room. People admire the grand staircase, coffered ceilings in theapartments of the first floor, the library and its twenty thousand volumes, theceremonial rooms where Louis XIV and Napoleon visisted. Works of art are numerous: Venetian mirrors, Flemish tapestries and Gobelins, beautiful Italian cabinet, bust of the Empress Marie-Louise by Canova and portraits.

Throughout the year, various events brighten the lives of St. Georgeois. An exhibition of paintings and sculptures is installed for many years in July and August, in the Chapter House of the Abbey. During Heritage Days, tours are organized, and many visitors come to discover a rich history. This period is also an opportunity for two local schools of painting to exhibit their work.

St. George is also fortunate to have two amateur theaters who, throughout the year, offer performances, fruits of their labor.
The terraces and gardens of the Abbey turn in July , to accommodate "Imaginary Encounters" by Jean Guichard.
The municipality organizes each year and the vaults of the Abbey Chapter House, a party mingling and complementary exhibition of contemporary art and traditional music that runs throughout the weekend, in the gardens.
