Cowford, or Cow Ford, is one of those places that every local knows but beyond that, one might not even find it on a map. A few places in Georgia use the term to indicate a place where cattle crossed a stream or a river. This is near the Tattnall County Landing and over the years has supported several small country stores. Three years ago, it looked quite different.

    Interesting name. Jacksonville FL was originally named Cowford because it was established at a narrow and shallow part of the St. Johns River which was used as a river crossing for cattle….a “cowford”. The name was later changed to Jacksonville to honor President Andrew Jackson.
