Dodge County was named for William E Dodge and was organized on October 26, 1870. William Dodge had a consortium of businessmen who purchased large amounts of timberland after the Civil War. The Dodge Land Company had over 300,000 acres but some was acquired in disreputable ways. Several court cases came about because of the questionable deeds and there were "land wars". Dodge County contains about 496 square miles and was formed from Laurens, Pulaski, Montgomery and Telfair Counties and is in the center of Wiregrass Region of Georgia. It stretches from the Oconee River to the Ocmulgee River.
