Built in 1885 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse sits majestically on the square in historic downtown Lawrenceville. The building is open to the public for self-guided tours and is also available for private events. Unique architectural features include the original turret and clock tower, chandelier lighting, 24-foot ceilings, wood-carved moldings, wainscoting, Palladian windows, faux fireplaces and an outdoor gazebo on a meticulously manicured lawn.
The courthouse is also home to the Gwinnett Historical Society on the second floor; the Gwinnett Veterans Council Memorial Museum on the first floor; the George Williams Collection of antique furniture, books and paintings in Room 122; and revolving art exhibits that line the main hallway.
