Long County, established in 1920, is located in southeast Georgia, 50 miles southwest of Savannah between Hinesville and Jesup. Georgia's 157th county was named for Dr. Crawford W. Long, the Georgian responsible for introducing anesthesia to modern medical practice. Today, Long County is home to more than 11,000 citizens and one of the fastest growing counties in South Georgia. The northeastern tip of Long County is occupied by part of the sprawling U.S. Army installation, Fort Stewart, which also occupies significant portions of the neighboring counties. The Altamaha River forms the boundary between Long and its southern neighbor, Wayne County.
