Welcome to Evans County, Georgia – at the crossroads of community and commerce!
We are located in a prime location for your business and family. The county seat, Claxton, famously known for fruitcake and chicken, is located at the intersection of major US Highways 280 and 301. Just take a short 10-minute drive to Interstate 16, and a 50-minute drive to the Port of Savannah, the largest single container terminal in North America.
Our community boasts an easy way of living within reach of Georgia’s most exciting and important amenities. We are only a three-hour drive from Atlanta, and a two-hour drive from Augusta, Macon, and Jacksonville, Fl.
With Georgia Southern University, East Georgia State College, and Ogeechee Technical College servicing our area, Evans County has a skilled, educated labor force.
Our Industrial Park West is GRAD-certified and shovel ready, with all infrastructure in place and almost 150 acres of land to develop.
We look forward to working alongside you!

Claxton-Evans County EDA
