Introduction to Statesboro, Georgia
George Sibbald of Augusta donated 200 acres of land to the agricultural community of Bulloch county in 1801. An act of the Georgia Legislature created the town of Statesboro on December 19, 1803. However, it was officially incorporated years later, in 1866. Transportation and trade were the primary sources of income during the 1800s and the early 1900s here. In the early years of the 20th century, Statesboro was the world leader in the sale of long-staple Sea Island Cotton.
