Terrell County was carved from portions of Randolph and Lee counties in 1856. Georgia’s 113th county was named for Dr. William Terrell of Sparta, who served in both the state legislature and the U.S. Congress. Parrott, a city in Terrell County, is a picturesque little town that has been used for several Western movies including The Long Riders.
There are two sites in the county listed on the National Register of Historic Places. These are the Terrell County courthouse and the Garden Club House. Another interesting building is the Chickasawhatchee Primitive Baptist Church, built in 1858 and today the oldest church still standing on its original site in Terrell County.
