The official tourism & travel website for Jackson, Flovilla, and Jenkinsburg Georgia!

Located equal-distance from Atlanta and Macon, Butts County was created on December 24, 1825 from parts of Henry and Monroe counties by the Georgia General Assembly as a gift to Governor George Troup, thus becoming Georgia’s 64th county.

Our 187 square mile county was named after Captain Samuel Butts. Captain Samuel Butts was a officer who was killed in the Battle of Calabee in Alabama during the Creek Indian War of 1811-15.
