Take a Scary Stroll through Downtown Lawrenceville this Summer

Did you know that Lawrenceville is the second oldest city in Metro Atlanta?  Established on December 15th, 1821, Lawrenceville is a strong community, with a square that remains the heart of downtown. Over the years, with the growth and development of Gwinnett, historic downtown Lawrenceville has been renovated with new restaurants and shops. During these renovations, Lawrenceville storytellers will tell you that sleeping ghosts from the historic times have been awakened, and paranormal activity has been seen throughout the years. If you dare, you should definitely find out for yourself!

The Aurora Theatre, hosts 90 minute ghost tours through the square of Lawrenceville. During these tours, a costumed storyteller will guide you through the streets of downtown, and the old Lawrenceville jail. This is a great way to learn about the history and interesting facts of Lawrenceville, while also hearing haunted stories, such as when the dead walked through the main streets of Lawrenceville.

This summer, May through September, you can be reminded of the past with ghost tours every Friday and Saturday night beginning at 8:30pm! Whether you believe in ghosts or not, Lawrenceville’s professional storytellers do a great job narrating a walk through downtown with history and terrifying stories that are sure to give you goose bumps, and send chills down your spine!

You can enjoy delicious food at any of the great restaurants located on the square before walking to the Aurora Theatre to begin the tour! This makes for a perfect evening on the town!
