ST. GEORGE Doug Alder has brought the sleepy town of St. George to life. He did this by conceiving, writing and carrying out what is known as "Historic St. George Live" tour.
Alder and his wife, Elaine, were traveling through Indiana just more than a decade ago when they passed through Conner Prairie. When they entered the area, they noticed that everyone was dressed in period clothing and gave presentations on Indiana history in first person as the historical figures whom they represented. After seeing this followed by LDS historical sites in Nauvoo, Ill. the Alders realized that St. George had the makings of a historical tour.
