Oconee County, the 135th county formed in Georgia, was created in 1875. Originally part of Clarke County, Oconee County takes
its name from the Oconee River.
The Eagle Tavern State Historical Site is located
in the county. Originally built as Fort Edward in 1789, the building had become a tavern by 1801. Some other interesting sites in the county are Happy Valley Pottery
and the William Daniell House.
The cotton monoculture prior to the 1930s badly damaged the soils of Oconee County. Today, only about 19% of the land is identified as prime farm land. About 56%
of the land is forest.
Jeanette Rankin, the first woman elected to Congress,
kept her summer home in Oconee County. She was elected to represent Montana before many states even allowed women to vote. Rankin was a pacifist and was the only
representative to vote against the U.S.'s entry into war against Japan.
Some of the special events in Oconee County include the Annual Oconee Fall Festival and the Christmas Parade.
