Coffee County, was created in 1854 from parts of Clinch, Irwin, Telfair, and Ware counties. Georgia's 107th county was named for General John Coffee, who fought in the region's Indian wars and was a hero of the War of 1812.

DeSoto's Spanish soldiers were probably the first Europeans to set foot in this area.

Douglas was named for Stephen A. Douglas, Lincoln's opponent in the 1860 Presidential race.

Coffee County is home to Broxton Rocks. These leopard-colored cliffs offer a botanist's dream of rare and endangered flora along with the largest and most dramatic outcrop of ancient sandstone anywhere on the coastal plain of the Southeastern U.S.

General Coffee State Park is 1,490 acres of swimming, fishing, hiking, and camping. The park also features Pioneer Village, a 19th-century village complete with log cabins, chicken coop, smoke house, corn crib, and other exhibits.

The county is part of the Wiregrass Region. This area encompasses the southern third of the state and is named for the "wiregrass" which grows among the tall Georgia pines.

The second Saturday in November, Coffee County hosts Mule Day, a fall festival event including mule pulls, wagon rides, plow competitions, and more.
