Museum Receives Gwinnett Preservation Award
The Gwinnett Historical Society (GHS) presented its annual Preservation Award for 2000 to the Southeastern Railway Museum during the society's annual meeting in December.
An all-volunteer, non-profit organization headquartered in Lawrenceville, Georgia, GHS (www.gwinnetths.org) is dedicated to the preservation of county history through publications, educational programs, and documentation of the county's cemeteries.
The GHS operates and manages the Elisha Winn Historic Site. The Winn home, built in 1812, is on the National Register of Historic Places. It served as the county's first courthouse from 1818 to 1819.
In accepting the award for SRM, museum administrator Lesa Campbell expressed the hope that small, non-profit organizations can work together to find new ways to promote historical research projects and cultural tourism initiatives within Gwinnett County.
