Lilburn Snapshot

The City of Lilburn, located in Gwinnett County Georgia, was founded in 1890 by the Seaboard Airline Railway. The area previously known as McDaniel, Georgia was renamed Lilburn, after the General Superintendent of the railroad, Lilburn Trigg Myers. The town prospered and was incorporated as Lilburn, Georgia on July 27, 1910. A devastating fire and hard economic times in the 1920’s ended the prosperity and the City of Lilburn ceased to exist.

A revitalization of the original historic area has emerged with shopping and restaurants in the Old Town district which has been described as a Slice of History. Lilburn Daze, an Arts and Crafts Festival promoted by the Women’s Club is celebrated on the second Saturday in October featuring over 400 vendors. The Annual Christmas Parade, held on the second Saturday in December is always an anticipated event for the community with over 70 entrees marching down Main Street ending at the newly refurbished park.
