Welcome to Oconee County, Georgia.

THE TAB TO THE RIGHT WILL DISPLAY THE CURRENT LISTINGS OF HOMES AND LAND IN Oconee COUNTY.

Oconee County sits just outside Athens but has a much more rural feel. Home to excellent schools, a strong community, and a smart approach to economic development, it’s no wonder Progressive Farmer Magazine named Oconee “The Best Place to Live-Raise a Family” three years in a row.

History

Oconee County was created from lands in Clarke County by the Georgia General Assembly in 1875. Residents demanded to have their own county created after the county seat was moved from Watkinsville to Athens in 1872. Watkinsville serves as the Oconee county seat today. Oconee was named for the river, whose name means “spring of the hills” in the Native American regional language.

Oconee’s incorporated communities are Watkinsville, Bishop, Bogart, and North High Shoals. Some interesting historical locations include the Eagle Tavern in Watkinsville, which served as a stagecoach inn starting in 1820. The building was originally constructed before 1801 and thought to be a stronghold named Fort Edwards. The Elder Mill Covered Bridge was built in 1897 and moved to its current location in the 1920s. It is one of Georgia’s few remaining covered bridges. Both structures are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Quick Facts

  • Total square miles: 186
  • The county’s estimated population as of 2015: 35,965.
  • Oconee’s Cultural Arts Foundation is active in the community, promoting arts, artists, and arts education.
  • Jeannette Rankin was the first woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. She left her Watkinsville property for the foundation of a charitable trust to fund women’s education.
  • Gainesville State College, a University of Georgia two-year college program, has a satellite campus in Oconee.
