Stewart County, Georgia


County Formed December 23, 1830
County Seat Lumpkin
Incorporated Cities Lumpkin and Richland
Total Area 458.7 square miles
History Stewart County was named for General Daniel Stewart, an officer in the Revolutionary War and War of 1812, and grandfather of President Theodore Roosevelt.

The Woodland, Mississippian, and Creek Indians were all inhabitants of Stewart County at one time or another. Two of the six largest Indian mounds in Georgia are located in the county.

The historic community of Westville is also located in the county. This was never actually a town, but is made up of more than 25 historic homes, shops and public buildings moved to the site from the surrounding counties. It is an example of 1850's pre-industrial West Georgia life, and is open to the public.

Lumpkin was named for Wilson Lumpkin, a two-term governor of Georgia, U.S. Congressman and Senator. He was a leading advocate of state rights and "Indian Removal."

Points of Interest Providence Canyon State Park is located in Stewart County. Nicknamed "Georgia's Little Grand Canyon" this park is a collection of canyons and gullies. These gullies were caused by the erosion from the poor farming practices previously used in the area. The 1,061-acre park also has the largest natural collection of the rare "Plumleaf Azalea" in the world.
