George Frederick Webb (May 6, 1865 – June 6, 1942) was born in Folkestone, Kent, England to John and Sarah Jane Webb. His family came to Hamilton in 1871. In the 1881 census there were 9 children mentioned. George Webb later went into business as a contractor, building such structures as Central Collegiate, the new Armouries, the Wellington Street buildings of the Steel Company of Canada, Ryerson School and Robert Land School. In June of 1906 he purchased the East End Incline Railway located at the head of Wentworth Street South, which he ran until its operation ceased on August 15, 1936. He lived in his home, Belmont Place, located at 1 Mountain Park Avenue and became quite involved in promoting development on the mountain. He was elected Reeve of Barton Township in 1913 and served until 1919. He was the President of the Hamilton Lamp Company which was later sold to the General Electric Company. In 1929 he was appointed to the Board of the Hamilton General Hospital and served three years.
