Located in Gwinnett County, the City of Dacula straddles Winder Highway and the CSX (Seaboard) railroad line between Atlanta and Athens, Georgia, about six miles east of Lawrenceville. Dacula is in the Vee, created by U.S. 29 and Georgia 316, strategically located at the halfway point between cosmopolitan Atlanta and academic Athens, home of the University of Georgia. Situated in the center of one of the fastest growing areas in Georgia, the history of Dacula dates back to 1891, when the area was chosen as a provisional camp for the contractors then constructing the railroad.
At its start, Dacula had one school and one church, and while today there is a fine educational system spanning several schools and levels of learning, and numerous sophisticated churches lining the oak-shaded streets, the simple, laid back way of life that was cultivated in the beginning of the town has been successfully passed down. The result is a self-reliant town of beauty, convenience and values all in one. Students of Hamilton Mill are served by Duncan Creek Elementary School, Frank N. Osborne Middle School, and Mill Creek High School.
Plenty of outdoor activities abound for residents of Hamilton Mill; with the opening of Little Mulberry Park, Gwinnett County's second largest park, residents take advantage of the amenities this 890-acre park has to offer. A collection of trails including woodland foot trails and equestrian trails, a lake with fishing piers, a 200-acre nature preserve and picnic and playground facilities make this park ideal for family events or solitary moments.
Both new residents and those who have lived in the area for generations take pride in the success of the ever-growing communities of Dacula. Residents also trust that those who come to the town seeking the unique quality of life shared there will assist in keeping the integrity of the town and its roots in tact, the way they have sought to do for over 100 years.
