Incorporated 1909. One version suggests that Lee was named after the first railroad supervisor, Jim Lee, for whom the depot was named. Another story is that Lee was named after General Robert E. Lee, commander-in-chief of the Confederate armed forces during the Civil War, who visited here. The post office was opened in 1882 and John Haven then chose the name. Philip Newland had established a limekiln at the town.

The small Town of Lee, population 338, is where heaven smiles down on earth. Only two miles from  I-10, five miles west of the Suwanee River, and thirty miles from Valdosta Georgia, Lee is an easy drive from anything one wants or needs to do. The Town of Lee is a haven from the stress of big  city life. Our residents have created a tranquil atmosphere that offers total relaxation for both mind and body. Chartered in 1909, the Town of Lee is said to have originated in the mind of Greenberry Haven, a pioneer of the pre-civil war era.
