Ware County Georgia

Ware County, Georgia has an interesting and intriguing history. Named for a state senator who never visited the area, Ware County grew out of the wilderness of southeastern Georgia. Through the toils and labor of colony-like settlements of people, who eked out a living in a backwoods wasteland, Ware County became renowned for its industry, commerce and natural habitat.
