The History of Alamo, Georgia
Nestled in the heart of Wheeler County, Georgia (a county located in the mid-southern part of Georgia) just a rock throw from the winding Oconee River lies the peaceful city of Alamo. Named for the famous battle of the Texas Revolution, Alamo, the county seat of Wheeler County, incorporated on August 16, 1909. Located at the intersection of Ga. Highway 126 and U.S. Highway 280, Alamo is one of the only two cities in Wheeler County. Alamo is just minutes from the famous Little Ocmulgee State Park, The Telfair-Wheeler Airport and less than two hours from the Atlantic Coast. Also, if hunting and fishing are your passion, Alamo is just the place for you!
