BRACK: Celebrate the Gwinnett Bi-Centennial with your own fact book

By Elliott Brack, editor and publisher | Gwinnett is about to kick-off a year-long commemoration leading up to the county’s Bi-Centennial of its founding.  Activities begin with a gala at the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse on December 15, in just a few days, and conclude on the same date in 2018.

This 200th birthday celebration points to the time when the Legislature was creating counties all around Georgia.  The eight original counties in Georgia were founded on February 5, 1777. Gwinnett ranks 42 (of 159) in order of founding. On December 15, 1818, several other counties were also formed: Appling, Early, Habersham, Hall, Irwin and Walton.
