Formation of Heard County

This map shows Georgia as it existed in 1828 before Heard County was created.  Note the size and position of Heard's parent counties, Carroll (Car), Coweta (Cow) and Troup (Tro).


This map shows Heard (Hea) County in 1830 after its creation from Carroll (Car), Coweta (Cow) and Troup (Tro) counties.  This is the shape of Heard County today.
