Candler County Health DepartmentCandler County was created in 1914 from parts of Bulloch, Emanuel, and Tattnall counties. Georgia's 148th county was named for former Governor Allen D. Candler, who spent his retirement years compiling the state's Colonial, Revolutionary, and Confederate records.

The county has two incorporated municipalities: Metter and Pulaski. The largest city, and the county seat, is Metter, whose slogan is "Everything's Better in Metter."
