DULUTH: At the Crossroads
Duluth, 25 miles northeast of Atlanta in Gwinett County, is an old city that has been an important crossroads to the area since the Cherokee Indians first settled here. In 1821, Evan Howell, developed the town of Howell Crossing near the Chattahoochee River. The town later evolved into a major artery for the railroad and was named Duluth, after another town in Minnesota.
Duluth is a popular and rapidly developing suburb of Atlanta, falling close to Interstate 85, which allows a quick commute to Atlanta. Duluth remains a busy hub today, continuing in the area's great business and residential expansion. Despite phenomenal growth, it has remained its small-town character, where personal camaraderie, spirited by annual holiday and festive events, is savored. Duluth is home to more than 22,000 residents who live, work and play in its 9.8 square-mile community.
Duluth’s motto, "Pride in the Old and New" shows its commitment to maintaining the city’s historic integrity while being progressive and forward-looking.
