Wheeler County Wheeler County was Established in 1912 and was the 146th county formed in Georgia. The county was named for General Joseph Wheeler, who served in the Confederate Cavalry and later as a U.S. Army officer in the Spanish-American War. The People A deep sense of community runs through Wheeler County.  The simple life offers the opportunity to really know your neighbors and the town.  It’s warm, caring people like these who created the reputation of Southern hospitality known the world over. Agriculture The rural landscape is lined with a variety of farms, fields and pasture land.  From Vidalia onions to herds of cattle, agriculture continues to play an important role in Wheeler County. Recreation While the charming parks and the abundance of nature make Wheeler County a great place for families, the outdoorsman can find it all!  When it comes to hunting, the acres and acres of forest land make a perfect habitat for many game species. Anglers find opportunity in the beautiful lakes, streams and rivers where an abundance of fish lay in wait. Wheeler County is home to Little Ocmulgee State Park & Lodge, a 1,360 acre park featuring camping, cottage, full service restaurant and a 60 room hotel style lodge. Inside the park you’ll find Wallace Adams Golf Course with its breathtaking surroundings. Loblolly pines, magnolias and the willows line the impeccable fairways. The lodge and restaurant have made this a true golf destination for many years.

Joseph Wheeler
Historical Facts - Wheeler County
Wheeler County is named after Confederate General Joseph Wheeler The constitutional amendment to create the county was proposed August 14, 1912, and ratified November 5, 1912. Joseph Wheeler Born September 10, 1836 (Augusta, Georgia) Died January 25, 1906 (aged 69) Buried at Arlington National Cemetery
An additional motto, In God We Trust, appears under these elements as a sign of national loyalty to the United States. Positioned within the canton is a circle of 13 white stars, symbolizing Georgia as one of the original Thirteen Colonies.
The current flag of the U.S. state of Georgia was adopted on May 8, 2003. The flag has three stripes consisting of red and white, with the state's coat of arms (taken from the state seal) on a blue field in the upper left corner. In the coat of arms, the arch symbolizes the state's Constitution and the pillars represent the three branches of government: legislative, executive, and judicial. The words of the state motto, "Wisdom, Justice, and Moderation," are wrapped around the pillars, guarded by a male figure dressed in Colonial attire dating back to the American Revolution, with a drawn sword representing the defense of the Constitution.
Milly Troup’sGrave
A little more than one hundred years ago, in the days of slaves and masters, and in the days when the North and South were fighting a decisive war about slavery, a young Negro woman was buried in Wheeler County, and a tree planted by her master to shade her grave. The slave, Milly Troup, was the housekeeper for the master of Mitchell Place, Governor Troup's plantation, located about 3 miles south of Glenwood on State Route 19.  According to legend, one day while the master was away on a trip, Milly became ill from food poisoning. She died a few hours after she was stricken. When her master returned the next day, he had her buried near the house and planted an oak sapling near the grave. He gave orders that the tree was never to be cut down, but left to shade her grave for all the years to come. Today in accordance with its planter's instructions, the huge tree, standing majestically in an open field, shades the girl's grave. An aged, unkept tombstone marks the grave. The inscription reads, "Sacred to the memory of Milly Troup who departed this life on the 8th day of Oct., 1863 - Aged 22 years. She died a perfect Christian, trusting her Lord, Jesus Christ. Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted." A wreath carved at the top of the stone bears the initials, "M.T.”  The mammoth tree now stands in an open field a monstrous thirty feet in circumference with several branches, which are in themselves the size of an average oak, engulfing two-thirds of an acre.  Adapted from "Brief History of the Area Now Known as Wheeler County" written by Michael A. Morrison.
