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.


Streets and Highways

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]

Another heading south leading right to the Boar's Nest is highway 36.[2]

The FM 74 terminates at FM 13 North in Hazzard County.[3]

Highway 104 runs west out of Hazzard County, into Choctaw County through Calico Junction past Hard Labor Creek in Hatchape County.[4]


Politics

The Official Seal of Hazzard County

There are a number of official judges in the County, including Judge Jefferson Davis Hogg, Judge Druten, Judge Simpson [5], Judge Peabody [6], and Judge Buford Potts [7]. There are a number of positions that are elected seats including the Sheriff and the Supervisory Director. The position of Sheriff is elected every four years[8].


Emergency Services

Hazzard County has it's own Police Department and Fire Department, both located in Hazzard Square. As of the year 2000 Hazzard County still did not have it's own hospital. Medical services were resolved by main medical advisor in the County, Doc Petticord until late 1981 where Doc Appleby took over for unknown reasons. Medical emergencies would be taken to Tri-County Emergency or the hospital in Atlanta.


Education, Sports, and Activities

The highest education level in Hazzard County is the Hazzard County High school. For any higher level learning of college or trade schools, interested persons will have to go to other counties. There is a Hazzard Police Academy for those wishing to join the police force.

The majority of these clubs are self funded and had raised money while working with a charity for the Hazzard Orphans Fund. [16] Hazzard also appears to have chapters for the U.S.O. and The Grange.
