The historical exhibit will be on display at GA-PCOM through June.
Did you know that Gwinnett County, the home of Georgia Campus – Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (GA-PCOM), is celebrating its 200th birthday this year? During June, GA-PCOM will display 10 traveling history panels which tell the story of Gwinnett—from its founding on December 15, 1818 to the present—in the campus’ rear lobby.
The panels have been displayed across the county from Lawrenceville to Lilburn to Norcross to Snellville and currently in Suwanee.
“We are pleased to provide exhibit space for this important historical information during June. We join with Gwinnett’s citizens in celebrating the county’s storied history, from its rural beginning to the current era," said GA-PCOM Chief Campus Officer Bryan Ginn. "We at PCOM are excited about being part of Gwinnett’s phenomenal future.”
The panels trace the timeline of Gwinnett and provide historical information about the county’s natural resources, agriculture, architecture, commerce, government, education and time periods like the Civil War and Reconstruction eras. The exhibit is only a small part of Gwinnett’s Bicentennial celebration.
