Our Archives is a repository which holds the historical collections of Gwinnett Historical Society. These collections include documents, photographs, genealogies, maps, textiles, personal papers, books, publications, and other artifacts which significantly reflect the history of Gwinnett County from pre-European contact and into the twentieth century.
Audio Files & Interviews
Here is only a sampling of our audio files of noted historians such as Franklin M. Garrett (author of Atlanta and Environs: A Chronicle of Its People and Events) and Don L. Shadburn, (author of Unhallowed Intrusion: A History of Cherokee Families in Forsyth, County) speaking at GHS general membership meetings.
The Gwinnett Historical Society and our research library offer limited digital reproduction services of materials in its collections. Fees are based on scanning services and are available for materials that can withstand the process. More information on ordering and fees below.
Use fees for images intended for commercial and non-profit purposes will be assessed.
The Archives are open by appointment only on Fridays from 10:00 A.M.- 2:00 P.M. Here is a list of what is available in our ARCHIVE COLLECTION at our location. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment to see any of GHS archive collections in-person.
Or are you a stranger without even a name,
Forever enshrined behind some glass pane,
In an old photograph, torn and tattered and stained,
And fading to yellow in a brown leather frame?
- Eric Bogle
