History of Suwanee, GA


Suwanee started out as an Indian community about 3 miles southwest of the present-day downtown region along the banks where Suwanee Creek runs into the Chattahoochee River. For centuries before the start of the Town of Suwanee, a big Indian village prospered on both sides of the river. The village had been initially settled by Shawnee Indians, but later, according to U.S. government files, both Cherokee and Creek Indians came to the region they termed as Suwanee Old Town. The village/town is found on maps showing land ceded to the U.S. government from the Cherokees in 1817 and the Creeks in 1818.

There are numerous accounts concerning the naming of the City of Suwanee. One implies that Suwanee is an Indian phrase which means “echo” while another maintains that it is the Creek term for Shawnee. Yet another account credits the name to the first white settlers’ way of saying the word “Shawnee.” In either case, the name Suwanee seems to be closely tied to the City’s Native American culture.

The federal government acknowledged Suwanee as a town when the Suwanee Post Office was set up in 1838.
