Welcome to Calhoun County
Close your office window blinds, close your office door, turn down any other sounds and let me take you down to the Southwest Corner of Georgia. Down to Calhoun County about 45 miles from Albany. Calhoun County is home to the longest running festival in the State of Georgia, it is home to the largest commercial vineyard and award-winning wines and it is home to the City of Edison. Edison is home to some of the best folks you will ever meet! We are glad to have you!
All About Family
It will be a beautiful drive….scenes of towering pines, grand magnolias, and fields of prime farmland replacing the smog, tall buildings and blacktop of the city. This is a place where the gnats and fire ants out number our county population by 100 to 1. However, if there is one thing to say about the people in Edison, Ga, we’ve evolved by adopting the persistence of our gnats and the “fire” in our ants when it comes to promoting our county and taking care of our families and children.
