Houston County is a county in the U.S. state of Georgia. It is part of the Warner Robins, Georgia Metropolitan Statistical Area. Its county seat is Perry. As of the 2010 census, the population was 139,900.

Houston County was created on May 15, 1821, as one of five counties in the state, and later reduced in size with the formation of Bibb, Crawford, Pike, Macon, and Peach counties.
