Wayne County

Bulloch County map.

Georgia's 21st county was named for Archibald Bulloch, who presided over the Provincial Congress of July 4, 1775, before becoming Georgia's first Provincial Governor in 1776. In addition to the county's four incorporated municipalities, a number of unincorporated communities like Nevils, Stilson, and Clito provide a glimpse into the county's history. One of the most interesting community names in Georgia is the Bulloch County community of Hopeulikit, named for a famous dance hall of the big band swing era.

Statesboro, the largest city, was created in 1866 and is the only city by that name in the United States.

Georgia Southern University provides a number of resources to the community. It is the home of the Magnolia Gardens and GSU Botanical Gardens. The Lamar Q. Ball, Jr., Raptor Center and Wildlife Center provides an ecological educational center, as well as a sanctuary for bald eagles and other native birds of prey.

A downtown Center for the Arts and an Agribusiness Center, featuring a multi-purpose building to seat over 1,000 for a meal and an outdoor covered arena which will seat 4,000, are being developed at this time.

The Bulloch County courthouse, located in Statesboro, was designed by Bruce & Morgan in 1894,
