History:

Georgia's 61st county was named for Colonel John Baker, a Puritan and noted patriot of the Revolutionary War. Baker County was created from Early County in 1825.

The Baker County Courthouse has been damaged by floods three times, once in 1925, once in 1929, and most recently in 1994. Their courthouse is currently located in a school property building.

Newton, the county seat, was named for Sergeant John Newton of South Carolina, a soldier in the Revolutionary War.  (Source)
