Gordon County

Gordon County, created in 1850, took its land from Floyd and Bartow counties. William Washington Gordon, president of the Central Railroad and Banking Company, was the man for whom the county was named. The first Georgian to graduate from West Point, he entered law practice and actively promoted the state's development. Calhoun, the county seat, is named for Senator John C. Calhoun of South Carolina.
