Stephens County was created in 1905 from parts of Franklin and Habersham counties. The county is named for Alexander Stephens, who served as vice-president of the Confederacy (despite his having opposed secession) and governor of Georgia.

The county's first inhabitants were an Indian tribe known as the "Mound Builders." The tribe thrived in Toccoa, at the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. The Mound Builders were followed by the Cherokee tribe who, legend says, named the area "Toccoah," meaning "beautiful" in their language.

The City of Toccoa originated in 1874, and can be traced back to the development of a coaling station for the Atlanta to Charlotte Railroad after the Civil War.

Stephens County is characterized by its bucolic setting and spectacular natural wonders. Located on the campus of the college named for them, Toccoa Falls, which plunge 186 feet, are 19 feet higher than Niagara Falls. The Chattahoochee National Forest, Blue Ridge Parkway, Tugaloo State Park, Lake Hartwell and Yonah Lake beckon to outdoor sports enthusiasts.

Stephens County hosts several community events including the Harvest Festival, the Arts Festival, and the Taste of Toccoa.
