Description

Thomaston, the county seat of Upson County since 1825, was named for General Jett Thomas, leader of the state militia in 1812 and builder of the state capital in Milledgeville. The Thomaston-Upson Archives, a joint project of the city and county governments and the local historical society, provides historical and genealogical information to users.

The Historic Courthouse Square, located in downtown Thomaston, is home to the Upson County courthouse. This building was built in 1908 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
