McDonough is a city in Henry County, Georgia. It is part of the Atlanta metropolitan area. Its population was 22,084 at the 2010 census. Inclusion of the unincorporated neighborhoods surrounding McDonough, which are not part of a town/city, raises the population to approximately 30,000 from an estimate in 2008. The city is the county seat of Henry County. It is the home of AM radio station Classic Country 1410 WKKP and SCB-TV cable Channel 15 television station.

The census-designated place of Blacksville and the unincorporated communities of Flippen, Kelleytown, and Ola are located near McDonough, and addresses in those communities have McDonough postal addresses.

The town was named for naval officer Commodore Thomas MacDonough and founded in 1823 around a traditional town square design. The buildings surrounding the square are intact, although there are some vacancies. The county courthouse and historic jail building are on the north side near the Welcome Center in a historically maintained Standard Oil service station, built in 1920. The station also houses the Main Street Program Office and Hospitality and Tourism Office. In the center of the square is a monument to Henry County’s Confederate dead.

One block east of the square, the town’s original cotton warehouse has been replaced with the Henry County Judicial Center. In the same area the Henry County Courthouse Annex has an original oil on canvas “Cotton Gin” (4Ω by 11 feet) by artist Jean Charlot. He painted this oil in 1942 for the town post office. His works can be found all over the world in everything from children’s books to large murals.

The town was a relay station on the New York to New Orleans stagecoach line and was connected by other stage lines with Fayetteville and Decatur, and with Macon by way of Jackson.

On June 24, 1900, a washout during a thunderstorm caused a train wreck about 1Ω miles north of town. The runoff undermined about 100 feet of the Southern Railway (Macon division) prior to the accident, and the passenger train subsequently caught fire, killing 39.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 12.9 square miles, of which 12.7 square miles is land and 0.2 square miles (1.6%) is water.
