The city of Oglethorpe was incorporated in 1849, and in 1854 Oglethorpe was established as the county seat for Macon County. Our history is colorful and at one point the city of Oglethorpe was on the short list for the new capital of Georgia, but missed the final candidates by one vote. 

Please note: the city of Oglethorpe is located in Southwest-Central Georgia.
