COUNTDOWN TO THE WINN FAIR

DEVOTED TO PRESERVATION

Our Gwinnett Historical Society is nonaffiliated with any government agency and was created as a non-profit organization with tax-exempt status. Our operations are financed solely through membership dues and donations.  Members have graciously volunteered their time without compensation. These dedicated volunteers form our Society management and operate the Society's office and library on the second floor of the Historic Courthouse in downtown Lawrenceville, along with the 19.2-acre Elisha Winn Property in the Hog Mountain-Dacula area.
