History

Banks County was established by the Georgia General Assembly in December 1858 and is named after Dr. Richard E. Banks. Dr. Banks was a beloved physician known for treating the people in rural areas and is especially noted for treating the Native Americans in the area for smallpox. Banks was created out of land from neighboring Franklin and Habersham counties. The oldest known house in North Georgia – Fort Hollingsworth – White House – is located in Banks, and was built in 1793 as a colonial defense establishment for local settlers in the area. It serves as a living history site today, serving as an open-air with period actors and activities.

Known as a largely agricultural area throughout its history, the county is still home to successful agribusiness enterprises. Area residents have worked diligently to preserve their historic landmarks, notably the Old Banks County Courthouse in Homer, the county seat. Ty Cobb, Baseball Hall of Famer, was born in Narrows, a small farming community located in Banks, in 1886.
