GA Land History

Charles C Corbin Jr. PE, PLS (Retired)


The Talk

Like the other 13 original colonies, Georgia has very unique land history. Unlike the rest of the United States, Georgia does not use the Public Land System of Township, Range and Section. Instead we have two separate land systems depending on where you are in the state. So why is that? Why are land lots different sizes and orientations in Georgia? This presentation will answer all those questions and more.
