Dodge County was created in 1870 from parts of Montgomery, Pulaski, and Telfair counties. It was named for William E. Dodge, a New York businessman who owned large tracts of forest land in Georgia. Dodge helped persuade Congress to remove taxation on timber and made a gift to the county by building its first courthouse in 1908.
