 Bicentennial Torch and Traveling History Display
FacilityGwinnett Historic Courthouse


The Bicentennial torch will on display at the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse from February 14 through February 28.

The Bicentennial torch will be relayed by cross country and track teams from Gwinnett Public High School serving as torchbearers in this yearlong torch relay that will cover approximately 200 miles. Runners will carry the torch to historic sites, public facilities, and cities in Gwinnett throughout 2018, the bicentennial celebration year. A traveling Gwinnett County history exhibit will accompany the torch to many of these locations.

The Gwinnett County Bicentennial Torch Relay represents goodwill, the connection between communities, and Gwinnett County’s journey from 1818 to today, where it transformed from a largely agrarian community to one of the fastest growing, most diverse counties in the Southeast.

Gwinnett County’s bicentennial torch made its debut on December 15, 2017, at the bicentennial celebration’s first official event, A Frontier Affair: Prelude to Gwinnett’s Bicentennial, held at the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse. On December 19, 2017, the torch made its second appearance at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center for a special presentation during a meeting of the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners. The torch relay will culminate at the County’s 200th Birthday Celebration on December 15, 2018, at Gwinnett’s Infinite Energy Center.

The torch will depart from Gwinnett Historic Courthouse at approximately 3:00pm on February 28 on its way to the next location, the Lawrenceville Public Library (arrival time approximately 4:00pm).

Visit www.Gwinnett200.com for more information on Gwinnett’s Bicentennial and to follow the torch route.

On December 19, 2017, the torch made its second appearance at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center for a special presentation during a meeting of the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners. The torch relay will culminate at the County’s 200th Birthday Celebration on December 15, 2018, at Gwinnett’s Infinite Energy Center.

The torch will depart from Gwinnett Historic Courthouse at approximately 3:00pm on February 28 on its way to the next location, the Lawrenceville Public Library (arrival time approximately 4:00pm).
