George Earle, an English immigrant bought land from the Potawatomi Native American tribe, who built a dam on Deep River, creating Lake George. He named the settlement which later developed Hobart, after his brother, Frederick Hobart Earle, who never left England. There are two NRHP sites in the downtown area of Hobart, The First Unitarian Church of Hobart and The Hobart Carnegie Library.
