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.
