Evans County Health DepartmentEvans County, the 150th county formed in Georgia, was created in 1914 from parts of Bulloch and Tattnall counties. It was named for Confederate General Clement A. Evans, who led the last charge of the Army of Virginia at Appomattox. Claxton, the county seat, was incorporated in 1911 and named for Kate Claxton, a popular actress of the time.

The Evans County Wildlife Club hosts a Rattlesnake Roundup each March. Highlights of the event include a parade, beauty pageant, arts and crafts exhibits, and a snake hunting competition. Live rattlesnakes captured during the event are sold to colleges and laboratories for research purposes.
