Wilkinson County is unique for so may reasons, chief among them, is the integral part we play in the worldwide kaolin mining industry. Throughout Wilkinson County, seven municipalities can be found including: Allentown, Danville, Gordon, Irwinton, Ivey, McIntyre and Toomsboro. Our citizens find satisfying small town life in a county rich with resources and industries that also provide conveniences of modern life. Macon is just a short drive away as are Milledgeville, Gray and Dublin- all less than 30-minutes away, and easily accessible in-part thanks to our sprawling networks of state and US highways.
