This County, created by Act of the Legislature Jan. 21, 1854, is named for Col. J. W. Fannin who was killed in the massacre at Goliad, Mar. 27, 1836. He had been captured with about 350 Georgia Volunteers under his command while fighting for the Republic of Texas in its successful War of Independence with Mexico. The first County Site was at Morganton but it was moved to Blue Ridge Aug. 13, 1895 by vote of a public election. The greater part of this County, which contains the Noontootly National Game Refuge, lies in the Chatahoochee National Forest.
