As the geographic center of population in Georgia, Butts County is truly the heart of our state because we are about people. What is it that sets us apart from so many others? Location. History. Natural Resources. Tourism and fun things to do. Interesting and caring people. While we may be small in size, we are big on all of these things!
First, we have great location! We’re on Interstate 75 between Macon and Atlanta, and while we benefit from the synergy of these two large cities, we have been able to maintain our small town charm and natural vistas. We have two access points to the interstate with prime industrial and commercial land located at both interchanges, available for development, as well as access to rail lines from Norfolk Southern Railroad. Georgia highways 16, 36, 42 and 87 all converge in Jackson, as well as US Highway 23. When it comes to location, we have it!
