The city of Duluth, Georgia is about 23 miles north of Atlanta in Gwinnett County. Once called Howell Crossing after Evan Howell, the grandfather of Atlanta Mayor Evan P. Howell, Duluth became one end of an ambitious railroad that would stretch all the way to Duluth, Minnesota. Now, the Southeastern Railway museum allows visitors to ride in restored cabooses behind real steam engines. Duluth also has the distinction of having elected the first female mayor elected in Georgia, Alice Harrell Strickland, in 1922.
