The Most Exciting City in the South

Covington, Georgia was founded by European immigrants and was incorporated in 1822 as Newton County. Covington was named for United States Army Brigadier General and United States Congressman Leonard Covington, a hero of the War of 1812.

In recent years Covington has become a favorite location for filmmakers and is known to many as “The Hollywood of the South.” With movies and television shows such A Man Called Peter, My Cousin Vinny, Remember the Titans, Sweet Home Alabama, Selma, The Vampire Diaries, The Dukes of Hazzard, In the Heat of the Night, Queer Eye, and more you can see how Covington got its nickname.

Covington, the county seat, is one of six municipalities located within Newton County – Porterdale, Mansfield, Newborn, Oxford, and Social Circle being the other five. Newton County is home to 13 Historic Places, three rivers, two lakes, picturesque farmlands, shoals, campgrounds, historic ruins, and more.

The residents of Newton County love it here and we are so pleased to be able to share our love of this area and this city with you.
