Warren County drew its territory from Columbia, Hancock, Richmond and Wilkes counties in 1793. It and the county seat, Warrenton, are named for General Joseph Warren of Massachusetts who was killed at the Revolutionary War's Battle of Bunker (Breed's) Hill. Georgia's first iron foundry and woolen mill sit at the shoals on the Ogeechee River in Warren County.
