Oak Tree

Engagement photo of Chad Alexander Smith and Rebecca Clay Smith (small silhouettes) when the land was still part of Jane Alexander’s farm, which would later be turned into Alexander Park.

The Alexander Oak

The giant oak that looked out on Scenic Highway from its place in the 91 acres Alexander Park is gone now, and that big oak tree was probably just an acorn when Gwinnett became a Georgia county in 1818. Through the years after the oak became a big tree and a landmark on the Alexander property it has seen all kinds of weather and over a century of changes in the Alexander family and Gwinnett County.
