A map of Hazzard County

Hazzard County is a fictional county in the state of Georgia in the United States. It is the primary location for the Dukes of Hazzard TV series.

History

In the 19th century, Hazzard County's main residential area was known by the name "Sleepy City" and dominated by the Hogg dynasty.

From 1979-1985, the county was run by Boss Hogg, the corrupt commissioner that will go to extremes to get what he wants.

There are also the Duke Family and Hazzard County's clumsy cops, Rosco P. Coltrane, Enos Strate and Cletus Hogg.

Layout

Hazzard County is shown to be primary rural. The majority of the County's residents are farmers with a large number of former and even current moonshiners in the 1970's and 1980's.

Hazzard is surrounded by a number of counties. These include Chickasaw, Osage, Hatchape, Placid, Choctaw, and Sweetwater Counties.

To enter the county, at least from one direction, would require accessing one of three roads being the Interchange, Route 421 and 76 South. [1]

Medical emergencies would be taken to Tri-County Emergency or the hospital in Atlanta.
