Wilcox County was created from Dooly, Irwin, and Pulaski counties in 1857. Georgia's 124th county was named for General Mark Wilcox, state legislator and one of the founders of the Georgia Supreme Court.

Poor Robin Spring, located near Abbeville, was named for an Indian chief who was said to have been healed after bathing in its ice-cold waters. A venison ham more than 100 years old was taken from the depths of the spring and found to be petrified.

The Ocmulgee River forms the county's eastern boundary. Guided wild boar hunts are available along its banks.

Wilcox is primarily an agricultural community. It is the state's second largest producer of watermelons and among the top producers of cantaloupe. Other products include peanuts, cotton, broilers, and timber.

The Ocmulgee Wild Hog Festival is held in Abbeville each May. Visitors enjoy big plates of barbeque, a womanless beauty pageant, arts and crafts, a hog baying contest, and displays of wild boars.
