The CofG was founded in 1833 to bring cotton from Georgia's interior to the port city of Savannah for export. The Central's first track--192 miles to Macon--was completed in 1843. Although weakened during the Civil War, the Central rebuilt itself, and by the turn of the 20th century, stretched across the southeastern United States. The CofG peaked in the 1920s and was absorbed by Southern Railways in 1963; today, it is a paper railroad under the umbrella of Norfolk Southern.
