Welcome to the official site of the City of Milledgeville, Georgia with an estimated population of 20,000.
Did you know that our city has a unique and distinguished history as one of only two planned capital cities in the United States? It's true. In 1803 the City of Milledgeville was "laid out" on the banks of the Oconee River and established as the capital of Georgia. Milledgeville remained our capital city throughout the Civil War, until the capital was relocated to Atlanta in 1868.
Today, our city remains in many ways vibrant and visionary. We serve as home to two great institutions of higher learning: Georgia Military College and Georgia College and State University. Additionally, Milledgeville has emerged as a regional center for retailing, health care, state government agencies, manufacturing, and financial services.
We look forward to meeting you personally in the near future. In the meantime, feel encouraged to call on us if we can be of assistance in any way.
Mr. Jarrett has been with the city since May 1988 and served as the Director of the Water and Sewer Department prior to his current role as City Manager.
