The Town of Sunbury was the original county seat, however, because of the length of travel from the western portions of the county to the county seat, it was moved to the Town of Riceboro, located south of Midway, in 1797. The City of Hinesville, named for Charlton Hines, an early settler and state senator, was established in 1837 and designated as the county seat, again to be more centrally located within the county.
