Metter, the county seat of Candler County, was originally incorporated in Bulloch County on August 17, 1903. Later the county boundaries were redrawn and Metter became part of Candler County.
Metter’s beginning, like many other small cities in Georgia, relates to the railroad. The city was established solely as a stop on the railroad. Supposedly, the City of Metter was named by a railroad official for his wife because he “met her” in Metter.
