January 22, 1818 a treaty was signed at the Creek Indian Agency on the Flint River and gave the American Government a huge portion of land which belonged to the Creek Indians and later became Irwin County, Georgia. These lands purchased from local tribes were surveyed into 16 land districts and those 16 land districts were then surveyed into land lots. The County was organized in 1820 and named for Governor Jarred Irwin, a native North Carolian. See the history of Irwin County.
