Did you know?
Talbot County, Georgia's 74th county, was created in 1827 from part of Muscogee County. The county and county seat, Talbotton, were named for Governor Matthew Talbot, who was serving as president of the Senate when Governor Rabun died. The first session of the Georgia Supreme Court was held on January 26, 1846 at the old Claiborne Hotel in Talbotton. Here, the state's first fifteen attorneys were sworn in and qualified to practice law.

Lying at the edge of the coastal plain, Talbot used to be at the ocean's edge. Now the county has large deposits of white sand which provides 90% of the United States' golf courses with their sand.

"Magic Hill," in Talbot County, is located at the foot of Pine Mountain. It is so named because of the illusion that a car with its brakes released appears to roll uphill on the road.

The county is also home to the Big Lazer Creek Wildlife Management Area.

Lazarus Straus, an immigrant from Bavaria, settled in Talbot County with his family and established a business which was the forerunner of Macy's department stores. Straus' sons, Isadore, Oscar and Nathan, were known nationally for their leadership in business, diplomacy and health reform, respectively.

Talbotton, the county seat of Talbot County, was incorporated on December 20, 1828. Located on U.S. 80, Talbotton is seven miles from Big Lazer Creek Wildlife Management Area. There is a 196-acre public fishing lake, a picnic area, a boat ramp and primitive camping available on this facility operated by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

According to 2019 Census, the City of Talbotton had a population of 6,195 persons. Between 1990 and 2000, the city experienced a population decrease of -2.6%, compared to the state growth during this period of 26.4%.
