Until 1996, the county seat was Augusta, Georgia. In 1996 the governments of the City of Augusta and Richmond County combined to form a single governing body known as Augusta-Richmond County.

Today Augusta is the second largest city in Georgia, and the largest city of the Central Savannah River Area. As of 2000, the population was 199,775. The 2007 Census estimate shows a population of 197,372

Augusta was nicknamed “The Garden City of the South" by wealthy Northerners that came to escape harsh winters.
