While grits and peanuts may seem synonymous with any Southern community, they carry a special weight in Worth County, Georgia. Established in 1853, Worth County emerged from small train depots, old roads, and villages into a group of lively communities whose agricultural heritage is recognized with the Georgia Peanut and National Grits Festivals each year. And Worth County also catches the eye of every supermarket shopper in the country, as each jar of Peter Pan Peanut Butter is produced within its county lines. Worth County also possesses a quiet history marked by the footprints of legendary travelers such as Hernando De Soto and Gen. Andrew Jackson, as well as Native American inhabitants.
