Haralson County was created from Carroll and Polk counties on Jan. 26, 1856 by an act of the General Assembly (Ga. Laws 1855-56, p. 110). Haralson County's original boundaries were specified in that act as:

"Beginning at the south-west corner of the eighth district of Carroll county, running thence along the line dividing the eighth and ninth districts of said county of Carroll to the south-east corner of the eighth district of said county Carroll, running thence to the south-east corner of lot of land number one hundred and forty-three in the sixth district of said county Carroll, thence running north to the north-east corner of lot of land number four hundred and eighty-two, in the twentieth district and third section of now Polk county, running thence due west to the State line dividing Georgia and Alabama, thence along said line south to the place of beginning."

Georgia's 113th county was named for former congressman and general Hugh A. Haralson (1805-1854).
