Grayson, GA

Grayson is located southeast of the center of Gwinnett County, the main highway through town, leading north 5 miles (8 km) into Lawrenceville, the county seat, and southeast five miles to Loganville. Georgia State Route 84 (Grayson Parkway) leads southwest five miles to Snellville. The city has a total area of 2.53 square miles (6.55 km2), of which 2.47 square miles (6.40 km2) is land and 0.06 square miles (0.15 km2), or 2.30%, is water.

History

The city of Grayson was first called Trip. In 1901, John Ellery Jacobs, the postmaster and civic leader, wrote to the post office department requesting that Trip, Georgia be changed to Berkley, Georgia. On December 6, 1901, the General Assembly of Georgia approved an act to incorporate the town and change the name. Shortly after, Ellery Jacobs was notified that there was already a Berkley, Georgia. He then suggested Graymount (because there was a clear view of Stone Mountain), but it was also taken. He then suggested the name of Grayson, Georgia.

Arts and culture

Grayson is a vibrant “live, work and play” community close enough to the big city for easy access but far enough to experience personalized home-town living. With excellent schools, sports programs, parks, restaurants and shopping Grayson is a popular destination for families. Throughout the year, The City of Grayson offers family-friendly community events including concerts, festivals and movies. Though Grayson is known for the excellent amenities of a sophisticated and professional city, we pay homage to our past with an extensive collection of historical Grayson memorabilia housed in the Arts and History Center.

Grayson was featured in Outbreak, published in 1987 by author Robin Cook.
