Description

Willacoochee was the first town chartered in the area that was to be known later as Atkinson County. An act of the legislature on November 12, 1889, set the limits of the town as “one-half mile each way from the Brunswick and Western Railroad depot in said town.” Willacoochee is an Indian name generally believed to mean “Home of the Wildcat.” Prior to being known as Willacoochee, the town was named Danielsville after a family residing there.
