  • Part museum, part rentable public venue, the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse is a lot more surprising on the inside than you might expect. The collection of war memorabilia spans from the Civil War all the way through Korea and Vietnam, all neatly tagged and well displayed in glass cases. The old courtrooms upstairs provide an excellent place for wedding photography or receptions, and the grounds themselves directly in the middle of scenic Lawrenceville host occasional musical events in the ever present gazebo.
  • Search for Pokemon, hit pokestops, and read some history as you walk around Lawrenceville Square.
  • I photographed a wedding here once and it was a very nice location.
  • Historical area often used for weddings it is pretty
  • We had our wedding booked there for about a year in advance. I found out about 4 months before my wedding that they had booked a rehearsal only 30 min before the start of my wedding. It was actually booked while my upstairs rental was active... This meant we would be sharing the property! I went to complain about the mix up and ask if they could add more time to the end of our rental if her event pushed mine later. They told me " it is our venue and we can rent it out how we like and will not give you more time" they then told me they hoped I would find another venue so they didn't have to deal with someone who was so unreasonable. I am by no means a Bridezilla but I did feel like they had double booked our events (every other venue I have talked to agrees with this) I was talked down to, repeatedly insulted and treated like my event was less important because it was smaller and bringing them less revenue. I know most brides are thinking "it's the cheapest place in town" but when you factor all your linens, chairs, bartender set up, fees you pay to have someone clean up, fees for a police officer, fees for "processing" and all the other hidden fees.... THEN factor in that you will do all your set up yourself, the major restrictions on all the vendors you choose, the lack of privicy the venue provides and the Absolute rudeness of the female staff (the actual people you will be dealing with day of) then you'll find that it IS NOT WORTH IT! We ended up breaking our contract and going with the Yancy House and we LOVE them! They dont charge for chairs or linens and have no hidden fees. We even saved $1,000 and the hassle of doing all the set up! I lost half my deposit plus a BS 26$ processing fee but it was well worth it not to have to have my wedding at the Courthouse!
