Douglas County, Georgia
Metro Atlanta County Guide
Douglas County in West Georgia was created by an Act of the Legislature on October 17, 1870, ranking 131st in order of creation of Georgia counties. The county seat, Douglasville, was named for Stephen Arnold Douglas, famed senator from Illinois and a Jacksonian Democrat who lost the 1860 race for president to Abraham Lincoln and is remembered for the Lincoln-Douglas debates preceding the War Between The States.

Douglas County remains relatively small despite it's attractive proximity to the metro Atlanta area. With a population of only 84,304 in 1996 there is still plenty of wide open spaces and clean air.
