The buildings are considered a health hazard, which is unfortunate, because they are also a piece of Lawrenceville history. My advice? Take lots of photos.
Gwinnett will demolish Oak Street buildings
LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga., (April 26, 2011) – Before Gwinnett County moved its headquarters to the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center back in 1988, County administration was based at a complex of three buildings at 240 Oak Street in downtown Lawrenceville. Two of them were built in 1948 to house Lawrenceville High School at a time when the population of the whole county was 31,000 and growing at just one percent a year. On Tuesday, the Board of Commissioners agreed to tear down the buildings and prepare the property for sale.
