McDuffie County was created in 1870 from parts of Columbia and Warren counties. Georgia's 132nd county was named for George McDuffie, who was born in Georgia and served as a governor of and a senator from South Carolina.

There are several noteworthy historic sites in the county. These include the Rock House, a 1785 stone structure which is Georgia's oldest documented dwelling.

Also of interest is Wrightsboro, a community founded by Quakers in 1768. The Quakers all departed by the early 1800s because of their opposition to slavery and the town gradually declined after residents refused the railroad a right-of-way.

Gold was discovered near Thomson in 1823, although local gold mines only produced a total of $80,000 in gold bullion.

The presence of Interstate 20 and its location within commuting distance of Augusta should continue to provide an economic boost to McDuffie County.
