Montgomery County, the 18th county formed in Georgia, was created in 1793 from part of Washington County. The county was named for Revolutionary War General Richard Montgomery who was mortally wounded at the siege of Quebec. Portions of the original county went to form parts of Wheeler, Tattnall, Toombs, Emanuel, Treutlen and Dodge counties.

The Ocmulgee and Oconee Rivers join to form the Altamaha River at the county’s southern border.

Almost 53% of the county’s land is in farms. Only 20 Georgia counties have a larger proportion of land area dedicated to farming.

The City of Uvalda hosts the Old Time Farm Festival every August.
