  • Echols County is a county located in the U.S. state of Georgia. As of the 2010 census, the population was 4,034. The county seat is Statenville. Statenville is not an incorporated municipality, making Echols County one of only three counties in Georgia to have an unincorporated county seat. The county was established in 1858 and named in honor of Robert Milner Echols. Echols County is part of the Valdosta, GA Metropolitan Statistical Area. Echols County has become notable in recent years as it has served as a place of banishment for many of Georgia's criminals. As the Georgia State Constitution forbids banishment beyond the borders of the state, officials instead ban the offender from 158 of Georgia's 159 counties, with Echols remaining as their only option. Few criminals have been documented as actually moving to Echols. This is because almost all banished criminals choose to leave the state instead of moving to Echols County. [undefined]
