Talbot County boasts churches, doctors, a health center, emergency medical services, a local newspaper, public library, clubs, restaurants, antique shops, an annual fall festival, a fourth of July fireworks, a farm, museum, agricultural center, deer & turkey hunting, fishing lake, archeological Indian site & white water rafting.

Located 30 miles Northeast of Columbus, Georgia, 30 miles South of Callaway Gardens, 60 miles West of Macon, and 20 miles South of Warm Springs - the site of F.D.R.'s Little White House and the Roosevelt Institute.

Come by the Chamber of Commerce for a taped walking or driving tour of historic Talbotton, the county seat of Talbot County.

If it's hunting or fishing that you are looking for, Talbot County is a sportsman's paradise.  Deer and wild turkeys are abundent.  The Big Lazar Wildlife Management Area offers great fishing and hunting is also available.   

Did you know that Talbot County was where Lazarus Straus came in 1853 and opened his first store, which would years later become Macy's.  It is also the site of the first session of the Georgia Supreme Count.
