Welcome to Oglethorpe County

Oglethorpe County is located approximately 70 miles east of Atlanta. The landscape is composed of pine forests, natural woodlands, pastures, and small rural communities connected by well-maintained county roads. The large expanses of open rolling fields and wooded acreage, punctuated with fine old homes, make this county a beautiful and inviting place to live.

Some History on Oglethorpe County

Oglethorpe County, established in 1793, is one of the oldest established areas in Northeast Georgia. It was named for General James Edward Oglethorpe, the founder of the colony 60 years earlier. Read our county history information section for more history.
