George A Bischoff was born in Emmitsburg, MD in 1862 apprenticing at a local carriage factory before moving to Dallas in 1881 and ultimately Gainsville, 13 years later. Besides being a brilliant and innovative spur maker, George was active in civic affairs as a 3-term city councilman who owned the first Maxwell automobile dealership in town.
