Barrow was created in 1914 as a way of settling a dispute among the citizens of the City of Winder, which at the time was located at
the juncture of three counties. A new county was created from parts of Gwinnett, Jackson, and Walton counties, with Winder designated
as the county seat. The new county was named for David Crenshaw "Uncle Dave" Barrow, long-time chancellor of the University of Georgia.
Winder was incorporated in 1893 when the Seaboard Air Line Railroad was built through the town. It was named after the president of the
railroad, John H. Winder of North Carolina.
Before being incorporated as Winder, the town was called Brandon. Prior to that, it had been known as Jug Tavern. The city of Russell in
the county was one of 187 inactive municipalities to lose their charters in 1995 as a result of a 1993 Act of the General Assembly.
Fort Yargo State Park is located in the county. The
park includes the old Fort Yargo, a log fort constructed in 1792 for protection from the Creek and Cherokee Indians.
Richard B. Russell, Jr., who served as governor of Georgia and as U.S. Senator from 1933 to 1971, was from Barrow County. His father, Richard
