Hart County, which dates to 1853 when the legislature designated it from parts of Elbert, Franklin and Madison counties, is the only one in Georgia named for a woman. During the American Revolution, Nancy Hart captured a small band of Tories who had been terrorizing her community. Hartwell, Hart's county seat, sits near a point the Cherokees once called Ahyehli Alohee, "center of the world."
