Grady County, on the southwest border of Georgia, is the state's 139th county. Created in 1906 from portions of Decatur and Thomas counties, it was named after Henry W. Grady, prominent editor of the Atlanta Constitution and famed southern orator who widely prophesied the "New South."
The City of Cairo was first chartered as a town in 1870 and as a city in 1906 and is located between Thomasville in Thomas County and Bainbridge in Decatur County.
Not only is Cairo and Grady County well known for our local high school's nickname, "The Syrupmakers", but we have also had our fair share of famous folks who have made their mark at the state, national and even international levels.
