Meriwether County, drawn from Troup County in 1827, is named for General David Meriwether of the state militia who was often employed by the federal government to negotiate with the Indians. Greenville, the county seat, recognizes General Nathaniel Greene, Revolutionary War hero. The county claims both Warm Springs, regarded as a healing spa from earliest times, and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Little White House among its local attractions.
