About Greene County
According to the Georgia Encyclopedia, https://www.georgiaencyclopedia.org/articles/counties-cities-neighborhoods/greene-county, Greene County consists of 388 square miles. Its landscape is comprised of farm land, lake country, and delightful small towns such as Union Point, Siloam, Penfield, Woodville and White Plains. The county was chartered in 1786.
In 1802, Greensboro became the county seat. It is also the center of the county. Nearby, Richland Creek chants notes of Creek Indian history and old Greensborough. The city of Greensboro maintains its rustic charm and invites all to enjoy original works of area artisans.
Greene County High School is located on Highway 44, just north of I-20, Exit 130. We are 33 miles from Athens, 75 miles from Atlanta, 70 miles from Augusta, and 66 miles from Macon.
