Guyton

Trip Planner USA  /  Georgia  /  Guyton
Guyton is a city in Effingham County, Georgia, United States. The population was 917 at the 2000 census, although a 2008 estimate by the Census Bureau places the population above 1,900. Guyton is part of the Savannah Metropolitan Statistical Area.According to Guyton city Census 2010 results, the population of the area was approximately 1,684 people. From 2000 to 2010, the Guyton city population growth percentage was 83.6% (or from 917 people to 1,684 people). Located just 25mi north of Savannah, it is an easy commute for its many citizens who work in Savannah.HistoryWhile some of the early settlers came from the Savannah area, it seems that most came from North and South Carolina. In 1792 a tract of 250acre of land in the form of a land warrant from Effingham County was issued to Squire Zachariah White. The community became known as Whitesville. The Squire was not married and left no heir when he died in 1838. White had granted a right-of-way to the new Central of Georgia Railway Co., prior to his death. He was buried on his own land, as was the custom then. His grave is in the rear of the present New Providence Church. Years later, a local controversy was started when some of this community tried to have Squire White's grave moved to the new local cemetery. It was never moved.Shortly after Whites death, the Effingham County Commissioners took over White's land for unpaid taxes. They had a survey made, laid off lots and streets just as they still are today, and sold it all at public auction as payment of his taxes. Many lots were bought by affluent Savannah residents as a place for a summer home. At this time, the fever was very bad in Savannah.
