Soperton, incorporated as a town December 17, 1902, is the county seat and the only incorporated town in Treutlen County. The town is named for Benjamin Franklin Soper, a construction engineer with the Macon, Dublin and Savannah Railroad.
Soperton is known as the “Million Pines City” because of James Fowler. Mr. Fowler planted over 7,000,000 pine seedlings on 10,000 acres of the county. Pine by-products are now an important part of the local economy.
