One of the first Gwinnett County cities to develop, Lilburn is rooted in the railroad that still runs hourly through Old Town near the city's municipal building. The city was actually named after Lilburn Trigg Myers, the railroad superintendent for the Seaboard Air Line Railway.
Lilburn is home to some of Gwinnett's award-winning restaurants. The city also has unique shopping and one-of-a-kind cultural experiences. BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, the largest Hindu Temple in the U.S., is open to the public, and tour highlights include the viewing of the sacred deities and the Aarti ceremony, the waving of lit lamps before the Deity.
Over the years, Lilburn has seen a lot of growth and development, and the future will continue to bring change to the area.
