General Info
Originally built in the 1830s, it was first used as a finishing school for the county's young women. Unfortunately, a fire destroyed the original structure, and a new building was constructed in 1855.

Later the Female Seminary was converted into a "civic center" for community activities, meetings, clubs, seminars, and at one time even housed a local radio station. The Gwinnett History Museum currently includes exhibits on farm life, textiles, religion, schools, traditional music, and also Civil War satirist Bill Arp. Other displays relate to and interpret life in Gwinnett County.

The Heritage Programming and Preservation Office promotes heritage preservation through special events, monthly coffeehouse nights, research assistance, and classes in subjects such as quilting, spinning and the dulcimer.

Amenities: Parking, public restrooms and food.

Free to visit and free parking. However, a $1 donation is appreciated.
