Morgan County, Georgia

Morgan Co., GA

Morgan County, GA


Morgan County was created from Baldwin County by an act of the state legislature in 1807. It was named in honor of Revolutionary War general Daniel Morgan.

Until 1818, when Walton County was created, Morgan County was a part of the western frontier of Georgia—all lands to the west of it being Creek Indian territory. This situation was forcibly brought home in 1813, when Creeks attacked settlers in the western portion of the county, in what is now Hard Labor Creek State Park, northwest of the town of Rutledge.
