Homerville, Georgia Information

As the county seat for Clinch County, Georgia, the city of Homerville has a population of2,456as of the 2010 census.  The county, created in 1850, was named for a brigadier general by the name of Duncan Lamont Clinch. In February 1853, Dr. John Homer Mattox and his family moved from their former home on the Suwannee River and settled on a tract of land adjacent to the Magnolia stage route.  In recognition of his family name, he called the settlement Homersville. Shortly thereafter the Atlantic and Gulf Railroad expansion replaced the stage route, and Mattox’s settlement was simply known as “Station No.11”.  Over time the settlement grew, and in 1860 approximately 275 citizens of Clinch County petitioned the Georgia General Assembly to move the county seat from the nearby Magnolia to Mattox’s settlement. Later the same year, the legislature relented and officially named Station No. 11 the county seat of Clinch County.  By 1863, the town of Homersville was known as Forest. It would take approximately nine more years for the legislature to officially recognize the name Homerville and incorporate the city; however, Homerville shows up as the name of the county seat in newspapers by March 1864. Dr. John Homer Mattox’s original dwelling is now the home of the Clinch County Chamber of Commerce and Welcome Center.  The home recently underwent an extensive restoration that not only restored many of the rooms to their former glory but also added modern plumbing and central heat and air for the convenience of visitors. The structure now holds the administrative offices of the chamber and a museum dedicated to the early days of Clinch County. The city has a total area of 3.5 square miles and is west of Waycross, east of Valdosta, south of Douglas, and north of Lake City, Florida.  The city has a single area code and zip code, 912 and 31634 respectively.
