The Gwinnett Bicentennial
From December 15, 2017, to December 15, 2018, Gwinnett County celebrated two centuries of history with events, videos, activities, and more.
The state of Georgia created Gwinnett County on December 15, 1818, naming it for Button Gwinnett, one of Georgia’s three signers of the Declaration of Independence.
From its humble beginnings as an agrarian community in the 1800s to its unprecedented growth as the second largest county in the state of Georgia, Gwinnett had many milestones to celebrate throughout its 200-year history.
To assist with the celebration, the Board of Commissioners formed a Bicentennial Advisory Committee comprised of citizen volunteers and supported by County staff.
