Twiggs County, Georgia, offers you LOCATION in diamonds!

Highway 96 is under construction and is being widened to a four lane highway which will connect I-75 and I-16 within a short drive. Interstate 16 bisects the county running east-west and connects I-95 and I-75, both active north-south corridors.

Land is available and water is ample in our Interstate 16 industrial parks. There are several parcels available and larger tracts can be subdivided. The Development Authority offers frontage property on both Interstate 16 and Hwy 96.

Twiggs County’s educated workforce is supported by numerous area colleges and universities including Mercer University, Georgia College and State University, Middle Georgia State University, Wesleyan College and Central Georgia Technical College.
