Jasper, the county seat of Pickens County, incorporated as a town December 22, 1857. The city remembers Sergeant William Jasper of South Carolina, who died at the siege of Savannah during the Revolutionary War.

In 1890, the citizens of Pickens County gathered at the marble courthouse in Jasper and raised a Union Flag to protest Georgia's secession from the Union.
