A Guide for Your Sweet Vidalia Area
One of the things I really enjoy is sharing my hometown with buyers who are relocating to the Vidalia Georgia Area. The Vidalia Area consists of Vidalia, Georgia and spans two counties, Toombs and Montgomery.
Toombs carved out of the once larger Montgomery County. In The Hawkinsville Dispatch 20 March 1873 it was said, “Stranger what part of the State are you from?” Says I, well, sir, I am from the Great State of Montgomery, nearly equal in extent with the State of Rhode Island…” (History of Montgomery County Georgia to 1918)
