Adrian is small city located in central Georgia. The city is split between two counties, Johnson and Emanuel. The city itself has a population of 664 residents and is ran by the mayor and five council members.
The city was incorporated on January 1, 1899 but first started to grow in 1891. Postmaster W.R. Smith made the decision to open a post office in the center of town. The post office opening made the town flourish. Adrian then became a railroad and trading hub.
The reason Adrian is split in between two counties dates back to a dispute between two land owners. The owners, Joe Hutcheson and Burrel Kea, both wanted to build a bridge crossing the Ohooppee River. In the end Kea was the winner and the one who had the right to build the bridge. In frustration Hutcheson encouraged the legislator to create new county line for Johnson and Emanuel. Once done Kea’s land no longer extended in Hutchenson’s County.
