Tifton GA Auto, Home & Business Insurance
Tifton, the county seat of Tift County, incorporated as a city on December 29, 1890. The city was originally named Lena for the daughter of the sawmill owner, Henry Tift. One day, however, a worker placed a sign reading "Tifton," and the name stuck.
Tifton is home to the Georgia Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village, a place to explore living history on a traditional 1870s farm community and an 1890s progressive farmstead. Costumed interpreters share stories of the past and recreate for visitors the lifestyles of these times.
Grasses developed in Tifton by Glenn Burton have increased cattle production in Georgia and across the world. In 1983, Burton received a National Medal of Science at the White House for his grass breeding innovations. Estimates propose that Tifton grasses now cover 10 million acres of golf courses in the South alone.
