About Suwanee, Georgia and Legal Representation Available

The city of Suwanee started out as an Indian village just about three miles from the now downtown area. The city is in Gwinnett County and runs along the banks where Suwanee Creek hits the Chattahoochee River. Long before the area became a town, the village flourished with Shawnee, Cherokee and Creek Indians on both sides of the river. There are several stories behind the naming of the town. The first story suggests that Suwanee means “echo” in the Indian language. Another story suggests that Suwanee is the Creek word for Shawnee. Lastly, there is also a story that proposes the credit of the name to the early settlers who were trying to pronounce Shawnee. Every story suggests that the name is tied to the heritage of the Native Americans so that is the importance.

The post office was established in Suwanee in the year 1838 and that is when the federal government officially recognized the area as a town. The growth of the town ran parallel to the evolution of transportation. In 1869, Abram Moore sold a right of way to the Georgia Airline Railroad. The village grew around the railroad depot and became a changing station for people taking the Southern Railroad to Atlanta. Suwanee was incorporated as a city in 1949 but was a small community based on agriculture until the 1970s. As the highway system grew, so did the development of the city. Today, the city is about 10.8 square miles which is a significant difference from the 3.1 square miles the city had when incorporated. Also, in 1970 the population of Suwanee was 615 people, compared to now the city has more than 16,000 residents.
