Careers, Jobs and Education Resources for: Houston County, Georgia

Houston County (pronounced /ˈhaʊstən/, and not /ˈhjustən/ like the Texas city of Houston) is a county located in the U.S. state of Georgia. It was created on May 15, 1821, as one of five huge counties, later reduced in the formation of Bibb, Crawford, Pike, Macon and Peach counties. As of the 2000 census, the population is 110,765. Explosive growth in the county is evident, with the Census 2007 estimates showing a population of 131,016 . This makes Houston County the fastest growing county in Georgia not within Atlanta's CSA. Its county seat is Perry, Georgia. It is part of the Warner Robins, Georgia Metropolitan Statistical Area. The county is named not after the familiar Texas military hero but rather after Georgia governor John Houstoun (who used that spelling during his lifetime). (from wikipedia)
