Cook County, created from Berrien County lands in 1918, honors General Philip Cook who fought in both the Seminole War and the Civil War, then served in Congress. He was the Georgia secretary of state for 24 years and a member of the commission that oversaw construction of the State Capitol Building.

Adel is the county seat and, also notably, the location of a “bottomless” lake formed by a lime sink.
