Stephens is an unincorporated community in Oglethorpe County, Georgia, United States. As of the 2010 census, the ZIP Code Tabulation Area for Stephens' post office had a population of 1035. The community of Stephens (including its post office) is located along State Route 77 between Maxeys and Lexington, at the intersection of Salem Road, which heads east through some rural and low-density residential areas and eventually on to State Route 22. Not much evidence is left at the heart of the community, as the railroad that once ran along State Route 77 from Athens to Union Point was pulled up in 2000, and all that stands are a few abandoned buildings including a recently closed convenience store. The community's ZIP code still includes most areas in southern Oglethorpe County, however.
