USDA Boundary Details

Decatur County, located in the southwest region of Georgia, was established in 1823 and named in honor of Commodore Stephen Decatur, a distinguished naval officer known for his heroic actions during the Barbary Wars and the War of 1812. The county seat, Bainbridge, was named after William Bainbridge, another naval officer who had fought alongside Decatur.

Decatur County's history is closely tied to the settlement and development of southwest Georgia, where cotton production was a significant part of the local economy during the antebellum period. The county's landscape is defined by its proximity to the Flint River, which has played a major role in the area's agricultural industry and transportation network.

During the Civil War, the county experienced disruption of its economy due to its engagement with General James Harrison Wilson's Union Army. The Battle of Bainbridge was fought in 1863, where the town's residents valiantly kept the Union Army from crossing the Flint River.

Throughout its history, Decatur County has seen growth and prosperity mainly in agriculture and timber industry. Today, key economic sectors include manufacturing, healthcare, and retail trade, reflecting the county's adaptability and growth.

Fun fact: Decatur County is home to the annual Swine Time Festival, which celebrates the rich culture and heritage of the region. This family-friendly event is held in the town of Climax, Georgia (also part of Decatur County), and attracts people from all over the state, featuring arts, crafts, a parade, and of course, delicious pork dishes!
