Guide to Gwinnett Cities -  Lilburn

Lilburn, Georgia

Like many Georgia cities, Lilburn’s development was rooted in the railroad. First incorporated in 1910, the town was named for Lilburn Trigg Myers, the railroad superintendent for the Seaboard Air Line Railway, and trains still run hourly through Old Town.

Today, Old Town Lilburn is a growing downtown neighborhood that reflects small town charm with tree-lined streets and sidewalks. Downtown development is thriving as businesses and homes are springing up, and nearby Lilburn City Park is the site of endless community activities and the start of the four-mile Camp Creek Greenway trail.

Concerts, Sparkle in the Park, Lilburn Daze, and the annual Christmas Parade are just a few of the events that draw visitors in to join the more than 13,500 residents that call Lilburn home. They must be smart folks – the Summer 2019 issue of Newcomer magazine listed Lilburn as one of Atlanta’s most popular communities.
