county information

Campbell County was created on Dec. 20, 1828 by an act of the General Assembly. Formed from portions of Carroll, Coweta, DeKalb, and Fayette counties, the county was named for noted politician and lawyer Col. Duncan G. Campbell (1787-1828).

A portion of Campbell County was used to create Douglas County in 1870.

On Aug. 9, 1929, the legislature passed an act to merge Campbell County with Fulton County, providing voters of both counties approved the merger in separate referendums. Voters approved the consolidation, which became effective Jan. 1, 1932..
