Its roots as a community stretch back to the early 19th century, when it was primarily forest land occupied by tribespeople. An Indian trail, called Old Peachtree Road by the settlers, was extended through the area during the War of 1812 to connect Fort Peachtree in present day Atlanta with Fort Daniel near present-day Dacula. With the creation of Gwinnett County, Georgia in 1818, white settlement of the area accelerated.
