The most attractive buildings in the seat of Sussex County are arranged around Georgetown Circle, an atypical round town green (in these parts, town centers are usually square), anchored by a courthouse on its northern side. On Return Day, two days after the November election every other year, the town crier stands in The Circle and announces the results. Much revelry – from a parade to the Mayors' Hatchet Toss – ensues. All concludes peacefully with a ceremonial Burying of the Hatchet.
