Taken from Wilkinson County in 1807 and absorbing part of Washington County in 1811, Laurens County was named in honor of Colonel John Laurens, an aide-de-camp to General George Washington.

Dublin was named at the request of an Irishman, Jonathan Sawyer, who donated the land for the town after stipulating its name. He wanted to please his wife, who was from Dublin.

The Ocute Indian Mounds at Blackshear's Ferry date back to 1000 B.C.

In the Oconee River, on the Laurens County border, government biologists have discovered what seems to be a new species of fish.
