Incorporated on December 24, 1843, Griffin, the Spalding County seat, remembers General Lewis Lawrence Griffin, the first president of the Monroe Railroad. Residents refer to the city as "The Iris City" because the Flint River Iris Society promotes and grows irises and holds an iris show in spring and an iris sale in late summer.

Infamous Old West cowboy icon, John "Doc" Holliday, who gambled and gun slung with Wyatt Earp, hails from Griffin.
