Screven County is located in East Central Georgia on a ridge between the Ogeechee River and the Savannah River. It is 58 miles northwest of Savannah, 58 miles southeast of Augusta and 197 miles from Atlanta. Screven County is ideally situated to take advantage of close proximity to large cities which house universities, major hospitals, international trade, and growing job markets. Combined with easy access to the wider world is the charm of small town living and rich heritage of southern hospitality.
Screven County claims a number of interesting sites: one of the nation's largest persimmon trees, located in the Tuckahoe Wildlife Management Area; Robbin's Grist Mill, built in 1803 and located south of Sylvania; Millhaven Plantation, one of the largest farms east of the Mississippi River; and the artesian wells at Rocky Ford. The first Georgia visitors' center was built in Screven County in 1962.
