Did you know?
Stewart County was named for General Daniel Stewart, an officer in the Revolutionary War and War of 1812, and grandfather of President Theodore Roosevelt. The Woodland, Mississippian, and Creek Indians were all inhabitants of Stewart County at one time or another. Two of largest Indian mounds in Georgia, the Rood Mounds and the Singer-Moye Mounds, are located in the county. Lumpkin, the county seat was named for Wilson Lumpkin, a two-term governor of Georgia, U.S. Congressman and Senator. He was a leading advocate of state rights and "Indian Removal."
Stewart County's Neoclassical Revival courthouse dates back to 1896, the building we see today is a 1923 reconstruction. The earlier courthouse, designed by A.J. Bryan, burned in 1922, leaving little more than the walls standing. The courthouse we see today shows the building after the outside was restored. In the near future, the county expects to start renovating the interior of the courthouse.
Providence Canyon State Park is located in Stewart County. The canyons have been nicknamed "Georgia's Little Grand Canyon"; this park is a collection of canyons and gullies. These gullies were caused by the erosion from the poor farming practices previously used in the area. The 1,061-acre park also has the largest natural collection of the rare "Plum leaf Azalea" in the world.
The historic community of Westville is also located in the county. This was never actually a town, but is made up of more than 25 historic homes, shops and public buildings moved to the site from the surrounding counties. It is an example of pre-industrial West Georgia life, and is open to the public.
