Suwanee, Georgia Injury Lawyer
Suwanee is a town located in Gwinnett County Georgia with a population of about 16,000 people.
Originally a Creek and Cherokee Indian settlement based at the intersection of the Suwanee Creek and the Chattahoochee River, Suwanee was first recognized as a city in 1838. Like most small towns in Georgia, Suwanee began as an agricultural town with ties to the railroads. It grew up around transportation primarily, starting with the Georgia Airline Railroad in the 19th century and then with the automobile and suburban movements of the late 20th century. Cotton was the main economic driver after the civil war, but the city evolved since and has moved away from agriculture. The origins of the name are unclear, but it appears to be a variation or mispronunciation of the word "Shawnee", which refers to the Indians who traded here prior to the appearance of whites.
From 1979 to 2001 Suwanee was the official home of the Atlanta Falcons. In 2007 Money Magazine voted Suwanee as one of the top ten places to live in the United States. Suwanee strives to maintain a small town feeling by managing the city’s growth and ensuring that there are many parks and community events. The city offices and courts moved from the old town center to the newly constructed town center near the intersection of Buford Highway (US Highway 23) and Suwanee Damn Road.
Suwanee serves many major Georgia highways and throughfares, including interstate 85, Buford Highway, Highway 941 and Peachtree Industrial Boulevard. Many companies host warehouse and distribution facilities in or near Suwanee and there is a very high number of tractor trailers on the highways here.
