Welcome to Burke County, Georgia

Here in East Central Georgia about 25 miles south of metropolitan Augusta and 100 miles north of Savannah, Burke County is in the heartland of the good life. Whether you are in Waynesboro, Midville, Keysville or Sardis, around here the convenience of the city is tempered by the beauty and charm of the country.

One of Georgia's eight original counties established in 1777, our county is full of history. Antebellum houses blend with Victorian cottages and mix with modern homes to create a continuity that defines history itself.

Small-town shopping and professional establishments work comfortably with modern industrial facilities to create a stable lifestyle for those who call the area home. The Burke County Chamber of Commerce is here to support our area businesses and to promote Burke County as a great place to live and do business.

In the Bird Dog Capital of the World, you'll find plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors. The Savannah and Ogeechee Rivers, as well as Brier Creek offer freshwater fishing and boating, while the Georgia Department of Natural Resources owns 17,000 acres of publicly accessible areas available for hiking, biking, bird watching or camping. The list of outdoor options is vast and one of the reasons Burke County is considered a "sportsman's paradise."

Life in Burke County offers so many rich rewards, you may find it difficult to leave. And that's okay.
