Jeff Davis County was created in 1905 from parts of Appling and Coffee counties. Georgia's 140th county was named for Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy. Davis had served as the U.S. Secretary of War prior to the Civil War.
Hazlehurst was named for Colonel George Hazlehurst, a civil engineer who surveyed the Macon & Brunswick Railroad. In August of 1995, Hazlehurst celebrated its "Censilver," 150 years of existence.
The Altamaha River is formed from the merger of the Oconee and Ocmulgee rivers just northwest of Jeff Davis County.

At least ten fishing tournaments are held in the county every year.
