Oconee County, Georgia
Oconee County is a county located in the U.S. state of Georgia. Census estimates for 2016 show a population of 36,838. The county seat is Watkinsville.


History
It was created on February 25, 1875. Oconee County was created from the southwestern part of Clarke County in 1875 by the Georgia General Assembly. The new county was created to satisfy southwestern Clarke County residents' demand for their own county after the county seat was moved from Watkinsville to Athens by the General Assembly in 1872. It is named for the river flowing along part of its eastern border, whose name in turn comes from a Native American word meaning "spring of the hills."
