Duluth- a Model City

A perfect blend of small business vision and southern charm, Duluth is the ideal community to raise a family. The result of careful planning and great vision, the vitality of Duluth – the second largest city in Gwinnett County – is continuing. Originally settled by the Cherokee Indians, Evan Howell developed the area and worked towards making it a major artery for the railroad. With the help of Representative J. Proctor Knott, a bill was enacted to build a railway system from North to South (Howell Crossing, as it was known then, to Duluth, Minnesota). The name was changed soon thereafter in honor of the railroad’s final destination.

Despite phenomenal growth, Duluth maintains its small-town appeal with annual holiday and festive events enjoyed by both residents and visitors.
