Pierce County was created on December 18, 1857 from Appling and Ware Counties. Georgia's 120th county was named for President Franklin Pierce (1804-1869), whose term as fourteenth president had ended earlier that year. Portions of Pierce County were used to create Bacon County (1914) and Brantley County (1920).
