Lawrenceville celebrates its 195th birthday…
Incorporated and designated as the Gwinnett County Seat on December 15, 1821, Lawrenceville was named for Commodore James Lawrence, commander of the frigate Chesapeake during the War of 1812 who was best known for his dying command, “Don’t give up the ship!”. William Maltbie, the town’s first postmaster, suggested the name of “Lawrenceville”.
Rich in history and strong in progressive planning, the City is excitedly looking forward to a bicentennial celebration in 2021!
