Appling County Health DepartmentAppling County was Georgia's 40th county, created in 1818 from treaty lands obtained from the Creek Indians. The county was named for Colonel Daniel Appling, who was considered Georgia's most outstanding soldier in the War of 1812.

The county has three incorporated municipalities: Baxley, the county seat, Graham, and Surrency. Incorporated in 1875, Baxley was named for an early settler who came from coastal North Carolina.

The Georgia Power Company's Edwin I. Hatch Nuclear Power Plant is located in the county on a 2,200-acre site on the Altamaha River. Completed in 1974, the Hatch Plant makes Georgia Power the county's largest employer.
