Originally known as Spread Oak, and then just Spread, the town’s name was changed in 1885 in honor of Colonel James Stapleton upon the building of the Augusta, Gibson & Sandersville Railroad. It was incorporated in 1906.
John P. Rabun, Jr., says that many of the commercial buildings in Stapleton were owned by and some possibly built by his grandfather, John Palmer Rabun (1879-1966) who was a farmer, businessman and Jefferson County’s representative in the state legislature at one time.
