Otis Ray Redding, Jr., best known for his passionate delivery and posthumous hit single, "(Sittin' On) the Dock of the Bay" was born in Dawson, Georgia.
Terrell County was carved from portions of Randolph and Lee counties in 1856. Georgia's 113th county was named for Dr. William Terrell of Sparta, who had served in both the
state legislature and Congress.
The county seat of Terrell County is Dawson which is a famous Spanish peanut market. Incorporated on December 22, 1857, it was named for William C. Dawson (1798-1857). He
was a Georgia-born lawyer and soldier, who was elected to the United States Senate for one term beginning in 1849.
Shortly after Atlanta's capture in the Civil War, Governor Joseph E. Brown arranged for
a refugee camp at Dawson to shelter some 300 women and children who had fled the city. The "Exile Camp" was later used to house a detachment of 50 Union soldiers assigned to
keep order in the area. Their kind behavior toward local citizens was long noted by the community.
The Battle of Echouanotchaway Swamp was fought here in 1836. This battle was part of the Creek Indian uprisings after the burning of Richmond.
Once virtually a ghost town, historic Parrott has been reborn. This historic downtown offers many unique showing experiences. Parrott, a picturesque little town has been used
for several western movies including "The Long Riders".

Another interesting building is the Chickasawhatchee Primitive Baptist Church which was built
in 1858. It is the oldest church still standing on its original site in Terrell County.
