Sugar Hill, Gwinnett

I am living in Sugar Hill now and had some questions. I have plenty of detains about Sugar Hill in Hall County but have not really found any details about Sugar Hill in Gwinnett. The city says it was founded in 1952/1953.

I could only find an "unofficial" answer

How did the City get its name?

The "Unofficial" Story:

Many years ago Buford was a railhead from which several freight wagons traveled regularly to Cumming, which even today has no rail lines. The story is that on one of the freight trips a heavily loaded wagon lost a wheel on a high hill and spilled a part of its load, including several large bags of sugar. The wheel was repaired and the wagon reloaded - except for the sugar, which had broken open and spilled on the hill. The area became known as "The hill where the sugar spilled." It was shortened to "The Sugar Hill" and then just to "Sugar Hill." Sugar Hill existed as a Georgia Militia District for many years before it was charted as a city on March 24, 1939. ... fault.aspx
