Lawrenceville Launches Bicentennial Podcast


Monthly podcast to feature accomplished leaders, business owners and residents.


Did you know there’s a network of springs under Gwinnett? Ever wondered where Lawrenceville got its name? Or have you heard that the city is celebrating its 200th anniversary this year?

There’s so much to love about the cities we call home, but we often don’t realize the fascinating history behind them. That’s why the City of Lawrenceville is launching its new Bicentennial Podcast with Gwinnett Magazine - to bring its interesting stories to light and discuss how the people and events of the past 200 years have turned it into the thriving community it is today.

Every month for the remainder of 2021, the podcast will feature Lawrenceville’s accomplished leaders, business owners and residents as they offer their perspectives and bring attention to what makes the city special. From its history to its economic development to its exciting future plans, there’s so much to learn as we celebrate this remarkable milestone!

The premiere podcast episode features City Manager Chuck Warbington.  Chuck shared his knowledge of Lawrenceville’s early history, from the surprising origin of its name to the various reasons why it was chosen as the hub of Gwinnett County and much more. Even if you’re a lifelong resident of Lawrenceville, you’ll discover many little-known facts and unique stories about the community.  There are options to subscribe to future monthly episodes.

Learn more about Lawrenceville and its history here.  Also, visit for the latest information on events, shopping, and dining around the square and to keep up to date on upcoming Bicentennial celebrations all year long!
