Claxton and Evans County

Claxton is a town of about 2200 located in Southeast Georgia about 50 miles west of Savannah. The town was named for Kate Claxton a popular actress at the time the town was formed. Claxton is the county seat of Evans County and has a nice court house that was built in 1923 using the neoclassical style of architecture. The court house is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
