Sugar Hill is a newer town than most in Gwinnett County and the surrounding region. The area was quickly founded by the Georgia state assembly and incorporated all in the same year of 1939. In 1975, the town’s charter was changed to a city.
There is an unofficial story to how the city acquired its moniker. Before its incorporation, the land that Sugar Hill now stand on was part of a railroad route. Legend has it that when a train was transporting sugar, a massive spill occurred on a hilly area of the land. It supposedly became known as the “sugar hill” from that point on.
Today, the area that Sugar Hill encompasses is much vaster, with the city having a total of 10.63 square miles, 0.03 of which is water. As of the 2010 census, Sugar Hill reported 18,522 people, and a 2015 estimate of 21,747. The city has grown nearly nine times over since the 1980 census. It was ranked the 75th highest growing cities in the United States counting from the 2000 census. It also ranks in the top 20 in the state of Georgia.
Sugar Hill does not have its own independent school district. Instead, its public school children attend the largest school district in the state – Gwinnett County Public Schools. Within the borders of Sugar Hill, there are three public elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. Private education is also present here with the Sugar Hill Christian Academy.
