About Lawrenceville

This historical volume is a fascinating compilation about the beloved Georgia hometown of Mary Long, local author, educator, and humorist. Many of the historical events described in this volume are recorded in older Gwinnett County newspapers and drawn from regional archives.

Mary Long, past president of the Georgia Retired Educators Association, was born in Lawrenceville in 1932. After graduating from Lawrenceville High School, she earned degrees from the University of Georgia and West Georgia College, and taught middle grades in Georgia public schools for 34 years. Married for many years to Dean Long, she is proud of two sons and their wives, and four grandchildren.

“I have researched and written about some of the many interesting things that have occurred in the place where I was born,” the author says. “Thank God for small towns, for small newspapers, and for letting me live in a state where I can understand the language and the people.”

As an active member of the First Baptist Church of Lawrenceville, Mary drinks coffee every Sunday before teaching a class of energetic fifth graders. On her good days she says, “I am blessed to have been placed in Lawrenceville, where the best people in the world live!”
