Monticello Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 7 photos
A typical rural Georgia town, population about 2,500. Jasper County was formed in 1807 and the town of Monticello was laid out in 1808. It is still very much a rural town.
A couple of it's "Claims to Fame":
On January 14, 1915 residents of Monticello formed a lynch mob and lynched a black family of four, including two women. Dan Barber, Jessee Barber, Bula and Ella Charles were each hung and subsequently shot by the lynch mob.
Country singer Trisha Yearwood is from here.
Many scenes from the 1992 movie "My Cousin Vinnie" were filmed here.
