OLD CAMPBELL COUNTY

This was the Courthouse of Campbell County at the

time it was merged with Fulton County Jan. 1, 1932.

When the County was created by Acts of the Legislature

Dec. 20 & 22, 1828, the site was at Campbellton on the

Chattahoochee but it was moved to Fairburn in 1870.

The county was named for Col. Duncan C. Campbell,

one of the signers of the Treaty made at Indian

Springs in 1825 by which the Creeks ceded much

of the land that later made up Campbell County.

Among the first County Officers were: Sheriff

Nathaniel Nickolson; Clerk of Superior Court

Littleberry Watts; Clerk of Inferior Court Gambril

White; Coroner Isaac Calhoun and Surveyor

Shadrach Green.
