History

Taliaferro (pronounced “Tol-i-ver”) County was established on Dec. 24, 1825 by an act of the General Assembly (Ga. Laws 1825, p. 58). Created from portions of Greene, Hancock, Oglethorpe, Warren, and Wilkes counties, Georgia’s 69th county was named for Col. Benjamin Taliaferro, who served in Revolutionary War and the U.S. House of Representatives (1799-1802).
