Wayne County, Georgia's 28th county, was created in 1803 from Creek Indian land. The county bears the name of a flamboyant Pennsylvania commander in the Revolutionay War, General "Mad" Anthony Wayne. Until 1850, the county bragged that it had no jails and needed none.

Wayne County includes three incorporated municipalities: Jesup, Odum and Screven. The county seat was moved to Jesup in 1874. The current courthouse, built in 1803, is on the National Register of Historic Places.
