Named for a Shawnee Indian tribe that settled in the area in the latter part of the 18th century, Suwanee, like so many other Georgia cities and towns, grew up with both agriculture and the railroads. Although it incorporated in 1949, Suwanee remained a predominantly small community into the 1970s. When highways made it easier for people to move in and out of cities, however, Suwanee blossomed. Today, more than 15,000 residents call the city home.
