Jasper County history is recorded as far back as 1632, when traders listed the Seven Islands Crossing on the Ocmulgee River as the place they first traded with the Creek Indians. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the Monticello you see now is a pleasant mixture of old and new. Monticello has kept its Southern small-town character. Peruse the quaint shops, enjoy a therapeutic massage at a local day spa, experience the local art and historic home tours, fish and hunt or attend a local festival in a town that has kept its southern small–town character.

The square has been seen in a few movies over the years, The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars & Motor Kings (1976), Murder in Coweta County (1983), and My Cousin Vinny (1991).
