Beautiful centerpiece to downtown Lawerenceville. Love parking by the courthouse and walking to the local businesses that surround the courthouse. Benches are available and a great place to sit and watch people.

I met someone here to see an exhibit they had on display. I had no idea what a nice place they had here! It was very interesting to see the old pictures and historical exhibit on display. You should definitely check it out!
