Sign_Treutlen_Co_GA_Development_AuthorityProposed to the General Assembly in 1917 from parts of Montgomery and Emanuel counties, Treutlen County was ratified in 1918 as the state’s 154th county. Treutlen County was named for Georgia’s first state governor. John Adam Treutlen. It is the county seat of Soperton and home to the annual Million Pines Festival which has brought several thousand visitors into town the first weekend of November since 1972. One of the state’s youngest counties, Treutlen is just over 200 square miles in size

Treutlen County’s abundance of agriculture opportunities and its “million pines” offers much for new businesses considering the location as well as currently industries considering expansions. Located two hours from Savannah’s growing port and Atlanta’s busiest airport in the world, easy transportation options allow for quick turn-around of products and goods. Proximity of the county on Interstate 16 running east-west from Savannah to Macon offers quick access to I75 in Macon and I95 in Savannah.
