Duluth History

Duluth was originally occupied by Cherokee Indians. During the War of 1812, an Indian trail was extended through the city to connect Fort Peachtree with Fort Daniel. The trail was known as Old Peachtree Road. The area was settled in by Europeans in 1818, after the creation of the Gwinnett County. Evan Howell was the founder of the city. In 1871, the city was renamed after Duluth, Minnesota. In the same year, a north-south railroad first entered the city. George Busbee, the retired Governor of Georgia, became a resident of the city in 1983.
