Oglethorpe County is the largest in northeast Georgia, with 442 square miles of land area. This rural gem has several small, historic towns, and its primary economy is agriculture. Located approximately 70 miles east of Atlanta, Oglethorpe has the natural beauty of rolling hills, pastures, and pine forests, connected by well-maintained roads. An outdoor enthusiast’s paradise, Oglethorpe also has a strong school system, a beautiful library in Lexington (the county seat) and several locations on the National Register of Historic Places.

History

Oglethorpe County was established in 1793 and named for General James Edward Oglethorpe, who founded the colony of Georgia. The county was created out of a portion of Wilkes County, and once established became a vital part of Georgia’s growth in the following decades.

The communities of Oglethorpe were connected by the railroad in 1841, earlier than most counties in the state. The county thrived until the Civil War, and with a few exceptions, the area struggled to regain its population after Reconstruction, the boll weevil infestation, the Depression, and the plummeting of cotton prices. Because the county relied so heavily on cotton farming, Oglethorpe lost over half its population during this period. Today, agricultural diversification and general economic development in the region have made it possible for Oglethorpe to begin growing once again.

Quick Facts

  • Estimated population as of 2015: 14,921.
  • In 2015, the median household income of Oglethorpe residents was $44,226.
  • Outdoor recreation is one of the big draws to Oglethorpe County, with year-round fishing, deer and game bird hunting, camping and more.
  • Shaking Rock Park, located near Lexington, has large natural granite formations throughout the area. A unique point of interest.
