Did you know?
McDuffie County was created in 1870 from parts of Columbia and Warren counties. Georgia's 132nd county was named for George McDuffie, who was born in Georgia and served as a governor of and a senator from South Carolina.
There are several noteworthy historic sites in the county. The Old Rock House in Thomson, built in 1785, is said to be one of Georgia's oldest documented houses with design intact. Built by Thomas Ansley, the home is said to be the home of ancestors of former president Jimmy Carter.
Also of interest is Wrightsboro, a community founded by Quakers in 1768. The Quakers all departed by the early 1800s because of their opposition to slavery and the town gradually declined after residents refused the railroad a right-of-way.
Gold was discovered near Thomson in 1823, although local gold mines only produced a total of $80,000 in gold bullion.
The presence of Interstate 20 and its location within commuting distance of Augusta should continue to provide an economic boost to McDuffie County.
Thomson, the county seat of McDuffie County, was incorporated as a village on February 15, 1854. The City of Thomson was once entirely owned by plantation owner John Langston. The city was named for Edgar Thomson of the Georgia Railroad.
The Thomson Depot is the headquarters for the Thomson-McDuffie Tourism, Convention, and Visitors' Bureau. The Belle Meade Hunt, one of the most well known fox-hunting clubs in America, makes Thomson its home. The hunt officially begins with the blessing of the hounds on the first Saturday of November.
According to 2000 Census, the City of Thomson had a population of 6,828 persons.
