Seminole County was carved from portions of Decatur County and the Jakin area of Early County in 1921.  The fertile land of Seminole County has allowed it to become the great agricultural area it is today.  Seminole County is located in the southwest corner of the State of Georgia where we join borders with Florida and Alabama.

Donalsonville, the county seat for Seminole County, was incorporated December 8, 1897. The city was named for Jonathan E. Donalson, a member of a prominent family who had pioneered Decatur County.

Seminole State Park, located 16 miles south of Donalsonville, offers picnic sites, a swimming beach, camping, cottages, and fishing docks to its visitors. The Jim Woodruff Lock and Dam creates the lake and 500-mile-long shoreline of Lake Seminole. Lake Seminole is one of the most highly regarded fishing lakes in North America.

The county courthouse in Donalsonville was constructed in 1922 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
