In the 1830s and 1840s the importance of the river and coach road for transportation of goods declined in favor of rail transportation. During the Civil War (1861-65), however, Union troops laid two pontoon bridges across the Ocmulgee River at Planter’s Factory near Seven Islands and crossed into Jasper County between November 17 and 20, 1864. Sherman’s troops destroyed much of the railroad infrastructure during their march to the sea, and until the railroads could recover, the river once again was used for transporting goods. The Seven Islands mills were operated until cotton lost its dominance in Georgia’s economy. Abandoned mill buildings were finally torn down in the 1980s.

Among the other communities in Jasper County are Farrar, Hillsboro, Kelly, and Shady Dale, which is the only other incorporated town.

As with much of the state, cotton was once the primary crop grown in Jasper County. After “King Cotton” lost its battle with the boll weevil and economic depression, many farm workers left the county. Those who remained began growing peaches. Later they adopted a diversified range of commodities from livestock and poultry to wood products. During the 1980s a number of clothing and textile factories in the county closed, making a serious dent in the local economy. Residents began encouraging the growth of tourism by promoting their national forest areas and Jackson Lake.

Among the outdoor attractions is the Lloyd Shoals Dam, also called Jackson Lake, which covers 4,750 acres, with 135 miles of shoreline. The lake was formed when the Central Georgia Power Company (later, Georgia Power Company) created a dam and hydroelectric plant at Lloyd Shoals on the Ocmulgee River in 1910.

Jasper County shares the lake with Butts and Newton counties. Part of the Oconee National Forest, the only national forest in Georgia’s Piedmont, is in Jasper County. Much of this large wooded tract was deforested during the cotton plantation era but has been replanted for both people and wildlife to enjoy. The Seven Islands Trail is in Monticello.
