Peach County

Peach County was the last of the 159 counties to be organized. Its land was taken from Houston and Macon counties in 1924 and named for the region's most famous crop. Fort Valley, the county seat, was known as Fox Valley until a legislative clerk made an error in copying the name. Residents decided it would be less trouble to learn to say "Fort" than to change its legislative act.
