Stopped just for the photo op. The locals didn't seem to have any idea who Three Legged Willie was, even though the museum was right there. Nice Town square.

This is an interesting little roadside attraction but to get the full story of the man they named the county after, go in the museum.

This is a statue of a three-legged former resident of Georgetown; although I'm still not sure who this Willie actually was, it seems like great fun that the city of Georgetown decided to recognize his abnormality in a statue! He must have been a character.

We visited (and shopped) the downtown area a few wks. ago and really enjoyed it. Our 8 yr. old grand daughter wanted her pic made with ol' Willie. Later on, we read about him on the net....interesting character. It was fun, and we all still...More

I wouldn't call it a destination, but it was interesting none-the-less. Willie is located right outside the museum, so grab a photo with Willie before you head in!

Willie's bronze likeness is found on Georgetown's downtown square. If you wander into the nearby Museum you will get the full story of quirky historic figure. A quirky guy on Georgetown's square. What surprise in this beautiful sleepy city.

The statue certainly isn't a destination on it's own, but you should look at it when you're visiting.

It won't take you long, but this is a legend for Georgetown. You'll want to visit the square anyhow, so stop to see Willie.

Cool to take a pic with 3 legged Willie. We walked right by him at first until someone pointed him out to us. Interesting story about him
