The first white settlers came to the area in 1808 from the Carolinas.
A settlement grew up called Pond Town, which was located in the
vicinity of the cemetery. It became a relay station for a stage line
which ran from Hamburg to Preston. From Pond Town there was
an Indian route, called Hawthorne Trail, which ran to Tallahassee, Florida.
Schley County was created from parts of Marion and Sumter
counties in 1857. Georgia's 122nd county was named for Governor
William Schley who served in the late 1830's. The name of the
county is pronounced "sly". The county is only 154 square miles or 98,560 acres, small compared to its neighbors.
The courthouse was built in 1899 and is listed on the National
Registry of Historic Buildings.
The county seat, Ellaville, was established in 1859, and was named
for the daughter of Robert Burton who sold the land to the city.
Ellaville is the only incorporated municipality in Schley County.
In 2000 the school system of Schley County regained the middle
and high school grades from a three county facility. Since that time growth in the county has been due to the excellent quality of the
school system. In 2006 Schley County High School won the Governor's
Cup for academic achievement.
