History

Randolph County is named after Virginian John Randolph.

Another Georgia county, Jasper, was the original Randolph county in Georgia; however, because of John Randolph's opposition to U.S. entry into the War of 1812, the Georgia General Assembly changed its name in an act of December 10th, 1812. Eventually, John Randolph's reputation was restored, and in 1828, the General Assembly created the current Randolph County.[3]

Lumpkin, Georgia was the original county seat. However, when part of Randolph was taken to form a new county, the town went with it, becoming the Stewart county seat.
