Ben Hill County, located in the great state of Georgia, was created on July 31, 1906, and named after Benjamin Harvey Hill, a prominent Georgia politician who served in both the Confederate Congress and the U.S. Senate. The county seat of Ben Hill County is the city of Fitzgerald, which was established in 1896 as a planned community for Union and Confederate army veterans.

Prior to the establishment of the county, the land was occupied primarily by Native American tribes such as the Creek and Seminole. European settlers, primarily from England and Scotland, began arriving in the region in the 18th century. As the United States expanded and the need for agricultural land increased, the settlers soon displaced the native tribes, pushing them further south or west.

Fitzgerald, Ben Hill County's largest city, was unique in its founding as it aimed for unity in the post-Civil War era. The town was carefully designed and based on a plan by Philander H. Fitzgerald, a journalist, lawyer, and former drummer boy in the Union Army during the Civil War. Interestingly, the city's streets were named after both Union and Confederate leaders as a symbol of reconciliation.

The county's economy has been historically rooted in agriculture, with crops such as cotton and tobacco forming the backbone of its industry. In more recent years, the poultry and timber industries have also become important to the region.

Fun fact: Fitzgerald, the county seat of Ben Hill County, is known for its unique population of wild Burmese chickens, introduced by a resident in the 1960s. The colorful chickens are often spotted roaming the streets and have become a local attraction, celebrated with an annual "Wild Chicken Festival."
