Mountain Park has a rich history

Mountain Park certainly has a rich history, dating back to Gwinnett County’s birth in 1818, and before that when the Creek and Cherokee Indians lived here. And the name Trickum played a major part. Some residents still refer to the FFT/Rockbridge intersection as Trickum, a name that’s been here since early days.
