Brantley County

Brantley County dates to 1920 when parts of Charlton, Pierce and Wayne counties were sliced away for a new county that is named for a prominent landowner, Benjamin D. Brantley. Nahunta, the county seat, is not an Indian name, as one might guess. It was a timber stop on the railroad labeled N. A. Hunter Siding. The railroad men dubbed it "Nahunta."
