Long County

The history of Long County is actually, in part, the history of Liberty County, for it was a part of Liberty until Aug. 14, 1920, when the Georgia Legislature created the new county and named it Long, in honor of Dr. Crawford W. Long, of Jefferson, Georgia, who discovered the use of ether as an anesthetic. There is only one incorporated town in the county: Ludowici.
