Lee County was one of the original landlot counties acquired from the Creek Indians by a treaty in 1825. Georgia's 68th county, it was named for Richard Henry "Lighthorse Harry" Lee, father of Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Lighthorse Harry gave the eulogy at the funeral of George Washington in 1779.
The original county seat was Starkville, but was moved to current county seat of Leesburg in 1876 after the completion of the Railroad from Americus to Albany in 1857. Smithville, in northern Lee County, is the only other incorporated city in the county.
