Miller County was created from Baker and Early counties on Feb. 26, 1856, by an act of the General Assembly (Ga. Laws 1855-56, p. 114). According to that act, Miller County's boundaries were prescribed as:

"Beginning at the north-west corner of lot of land number one hundred and one, (101,) in the twenty-sixth district of Early county, and running due south to the south-west corner of lot of land number one hundred and twenty, (120,) in said district, and from thence running due east to the south-east corner of lot number three hundred and one (301) in the twelfth district of Baker county, and from thence running due north to the north-east corner of lot number two hundred and thirty-eight in said twelfth district, thence running due west to the beginning . . . ."

Georgia's 117th county was named for Georgia lawyer, politician, and Medical College of Georgia president Andrew J. Miller (1806-1856).
