With a four-story clocktower that overlooks the town square in downtown Lawrenceville, the 1885 Gwinnett Historic Courthouse also serves as a beautiful venue for weddings, meetings, and special events, including the annual tree lighting at Thanksgiving.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the stately brick building served as the center of county business for over a century, and the 2-acre manicured grounds, complete with gazebo and picnic tables, have been a popular spot for socializing since the early 1900s.
Open for self-guided walking tours, the courthouse features charming architectural details, from turret balcony to Palladian windows; boasts a dazzling ballroom with vintage chandeliers and 24-foot ceilings; hosts seasonal art exhibits in the Gallery Hall; and houses the Gwinnett Historical Society and Gwinnett Veterans Memorial Museum.
