A Look at Years Past

Early in the 19th century, Duluth started out as a wooded area that was part of the Cherokee territory. The first road was developed during the War of 1812, called Old Peachtree Road. It linked the Fort Peachtree in what is now Atlanta to Fort Daniel, near Dacula. In 1818, Gwinnett County, Georgia was created. This caused the area to be settled quickly. When named, the area was called Howell's Crossing, after cotton merchant Evan Howell. However, the name was changed with the connection of the north-south rail lines. This boosted the economy and helped to build the area up to what it is today.
