Toombs County , the 142nd county formed in Georgia, was created in 1905 from parts of Emanuel, Tattnall and Montgomery counties. The county was named for Robert Toombs, the Confederacy's Brigadier General and Secretary of State. Toombs had served in both houses of the U.S. Congress, but was a leading secession advocate at the Secession Convention at Milledgeville.

Toombs County is most famous for its sweet Vidalia onions, the state vegetable of Georgia. In fact, Vidalia is known as the "Sweet Onion Capital of the World." Plain onion seeds, when planted in the sandy loam soil of Toombs County, grow onions that are sweeter and juicier than the average onion.

The Ladson Genealogical Library, located in Toombs County, is one of the largest of such libraries in the Southeastern United States.

The Altamaha River forms the county's southern border.

Some of the special events in Toombs County are the Vidalia Onion Festival, held every spring, the Southeastern Georgia Soapbox Derby, and the Franklinia Playhouse.
