About Us

We are Duluth Georgia’s community educational support group, building strong relationships within our city and county.

We are developing programs of historic interest. While working on these programs, we are compiling lost history and artifacts which we are sharing with this generation to inspire them to compile their history moving forward.

“An open mind has all the possibilities for the future”

Our Motto

“Preserving our history, Recording the present and Reaching for the future”

Why and When the Duluth Historical Society was Formed

In the year 2000, the stewardship and trust by the early dedicated volunteers formed a foundation upon which to build and provide a large body of knowledge.

From there they became the Duluth Historical Society which fulfilled the need to preserve the history and future of Duluth’s southern heritage.

The evolution  of committed volunteers fulfilled the need to preserve the memory and history of the fundamental development of Duluth, Georgia.
