George Washington Owen (October 20, 1796 - August 18, 1837) was an American politician from Alabama who served as that state's 3rd District's Representative, and the Mayor of Mobile. Owen was born in Brunswick County, Virginia in 1796, but moved to Tennessee at a young age. He graduated from the University of Nashville, where he studied law; he was admitted to the bar in 1816, and moved to Alabama to practice. He unsuccessfully ran for Congress in 1821 and successfully in 1823 when he became the first Representative of Alabama's 3rd District. He served in that position until 1829, when he was succeeded by Dixon Hall Lewis, who would later become Senator. Owen was elected Mayor of Mobile, Alabama in 1836, a position in which he served until his death the following year.
