Over the past thirty years, Phyllis and Marvin Hughes have led the historic preservation effort in Gwinnett County. Their passion for natural and cultural resources is evident in their dedication to the preservation of the land associated with the Elisha Winn House, the Parks-Strickland Complex, and the Isaac Adair House and Commissary. Through their hard work, these properties have been preserved for the enjoyment and education of generations to come. Gwinnett County acknowledges that the Hughes’ leadership has led to significant strides in preservation in the county, and their contributions have been invaluable.
