Blacksville is an unincorporated community in Henry County, Georgia, United States. At the 2000 census it was recorded as a census-designated place (CDP), with a population of four. It was no longer a CDP at the 2010 census.

Blacksville is named after the local demographics of McDonough, Georgia, during the era of legal segregation. McDonough is where whites lived; Blacksville is the adjacent area where blacks lived. Blacksville grew next to, but on the "wrong side", of the railroad tracks. The segregation-era black high school for Henry County, Georgia, was in Blacksville and is now used as Henry County Middle School. Most of the community was subsequently annexed by nearby McDonough.
