Welcome to Blackshear!
We are a community of friendly folks and good neighbors who are never too busy to stop, shake hands, and visit awhile.
We are a community focused on progress while honoring our past.
We are a community of 3,300 hard-working citizens who value quality of life and appreciate our Southeast Georgia climate and abundant natural resources.
We are a Georgia Classic Main Street City!
Whether you are visitor or a life-long resident, you will enjoy these notable features:
Additional shopping, dining, two colleges, and the Mayor Clinic Health System are a fifteen minute drive from downtown. Blackshear is the county seat for Pierce County which is sixty percent forest land and offers excellent hunting and fishing opportunities. The Okefenokee Wildlife Refuge and the Georgia coast are a short drive away and make great day trips for tourists and residents.
On behalf of the City Council, the Main Street Program, and the citizens of Blackshear, welcome to our community!
Dick Larson, Mayor
