Welcome to the GAGenWeb Carroll County, Georgia Project
Carroll County was one of five counties created by the General Assembly on June 9, 1825. The counties were not actually named until Gov. Troup signed an act of Dec. 11, 1826. The act of 1825 established boundaries and is considered the date of Carroll County creation. Carroll was Georgia's 65th county.
In 1825 a group of Creek Indians ceded land for
creation of the five counties (See
Treaty of Indian Springs).
Carroll was named for Charles Carroll of Maryland, at that time the last surviving signer of the Declaration of Independence. For additional information on the history of Carroll County, please see HISTORY.
Campbell-1828, Douglas-1870, Haralson-1856 and Heard-1830 Counties have since been created from parts of the original Carroll boundaries.
