Snellville’s convenient Gwinnett County location, approximately 18 miles east of Atlanta and 45 miles west of Athens and at the intersection of U.S. Highway 78 and Georgia Highway 124, has allowed it to prosper. Snellville’s roots extend to 19th century London.
Snellville’s city celebration called “Snellville Days” is held the first weekend in May annually. The event provides fun for the entire family including vendors, food, musical and other entertainment and more!
As of early 2011, new housing construction, much of it upscale, continues in Snellville and in areas of southern Gwinnett County carrying a Snellville address. This is the only area of metro Atlanta where this is occurring on such a large scale, despite the recession. Also, the award-winning and upscale Governor's Walk neighborhood in Snellville went on to be completed after the recession was well under way. Though many of the spec homes in Governor's Walk went into repossession during the recession, all were bought and completed, or were in the process of being completed, as of January 2011. Lake Norris had new upscale construction going on as of January 2011 with two new homes under construction and several major remodelings in progress. There was abundant new construction occurring along Centerville Highway as well, as of January 2011. On Norris Lake Way, a collection of homes in the million dollar range continued to sell as of 2011, making it one of the few areas of the metro where upscale new construction was still selling well.
