Twiggs County is a beautiful land of pleasant contrasts contained within our 360 square miles and also has distinction of being the geographic center of the state. Twiggs County has a major interstate running through the heart of the county which is I-16. I-16 gives us easy access to both Savannah and Macon. We now have two industrial parks, one of 150 acres and the other 500 acres, at the intersection of I-16 and Hwy 96.
Our county contains the flat pine woods associated with South Georgia and the gentle rolling hills of the Piedmont in the northern end of the county. Located along the Fall Line, we have been blessed with an abundance of kaolin. The kaolin industry, along with forestry and farming, sustained the county’s economy throughout the 20th Century. Twiggs County has a current population of 9,023 according to the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau.
The present county seat and courthouse is in Jeffersonville. The 100 year old courthouse built in 1902-03, in Romanesque Revival style architecture, recently underwent major renovation and substantial expansion.
