Our County’s namesake, Button Gwinnett, signed the Declaration of Independence! He was one of the three signers from the state of Georgia. Though Button himself never got a chance to visit Gwinnett County, you can now help him see sites around the community! Print out our Flat Button, cut him out, and color him any way you want! Then, you can bring him all around the county on your bicentennial adventures.

Turn back time and enjoy camping as pioneers did. Enjoy the old way of life, including open-flame cooking and a chuck wagon of food, and complete the night with a traditional campfire dessert. Wake up Saturday morning to join us for the National Public Lands Day celebration and park cleanup from 9:00am to noon, followed by an old-fashioned hotdog-on-a-stick closing ceremony. For more information, visit www.gwinnettparks.com.
In honor of our bicentennial, a special activity book highlighting Gwinnett’s 200 years has been created to help kids get involved with the celebration. Download some of the activities today, or keep an eye out for the Gwinnett 200 booth at community events where you could pick up a full version of the book!
