Talbot County, Georgia's 74th county, was created in 1827 from part of Muscogee County. The county and county seat, Talbotton, were named for Governor Matthew Talbot, who was serving as president of the Senate when Governor Rabun died. The first session of the Georgia Supreme Court was held on January 26, 1846 at the old Claiborne Hotel in Talbotton. Here, the state's first fifteen attorneys were sworn in and qualified to practice law.
Lying at the edge of the coastal plain, Talbot used to be at the ocean's edge. Now the county has large deposits of white sand which provides 90% of the United States' golf courses with their sand.
"Magic Hill," in Talbot County, is located at the foot of Pine Mountain. It is so named because of the illusion that a car with its brakes released appears to roll uphill on the road.
