CREATION OF BRANTLEY COUNTY

 

An Amendment to the Georgia Constitution, approved by the Georgia General Assembly on August 14, 1920, created the County of Brantley, and designated Hoboken, Ga. as its first county seat. Three years later, after a vote of the people, and numerous court battles, the Georgia Supreme Court changed the county seat to Nahunta, located nine miles east, across "fire tower ridge," and west of the sunrise coming across Glynn Co.

 

The coordinator of the GAGENWEB pages for Brantley County is Jerry Van Herrin. We solicit your input.
