Om Evans County
How many counties can boast of having Georgia's first female sheriff and a town known as the "fruitcake capital of the world"? These distinctions, and many others, make Evans County unique. Evans, the 150th of Georgia's 159 counties, was created in 1914 from parts of Bulloch and Tattnall Counties. Its development was closely linked with agriculture and the growth of railroads, and the area towns of Daisy, Claxton, Hagan, and Bellville all began as train depots. Although Evans is one of Georgia's later and smaller counties, it offers a fine example of rural progress and friendly communities. As Evans County enters its centennial year, there is much to celebrate.
