History

Geneva County was created in 1868 from Dale and Coffee counties. It is part of the five-county southeastern corner of Alabama known as the Wiregrass, which is part of the Southeastern Plains Region. Drained by the Choctawhatchee River, Geneva County is bordered by Coffee, Covington, Dale, and Houston counties in Alabama and Walton and Holmes counties in Florida. Its county seat, the town of Geneva, is on AL-52 about 35 miles west of Dothan and 100 miles SSE of Montgomery. Other towns and communities include Samson and Hartford.
