Twiggs County is a beautiful land of pleasant contrasts contained within our 360 square miles and is the “Geographic Center of the State“. There is a major interstate (I-16) running through the heart of the county providing easy access to both Savannah and Macon. There are two industrial parks (one with 150 acres & the other with 500 acres) at the intersection of I-16 and Hwy 96.
The 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, there is an abundance of kaolin. The kaolin industry, along with forestry & farming, sustained the county’s economy throughout the 20th Century. Twiggs County’s current population is 9,023 (Source: 2010 U.S. Census Bureau).
The present county seat and courthouse is in the City of Jeffersonville. The 100 year old courthouse (built in 1902-03 in the Romanesque Revival style architecture) was renovated in 1979, followed by a major renovation and substantial expansion in 1996, and completion in 2003.
