Mission Statement

The Fort Daniel Historic Site and Archaeological Research Park is a permanent archaeological research preserve owned by Gwinnett County and available to researchers, historians and educators. The Fort Daniel Foundation is responsible for development of the site and programming. The mission of the Foundation is:

  • Teach the value of our cultural heritage, particularly as it is contained in archaeological sites
  • Train and mentor archaeology students
  • Providing public archaeology opportunities
  • Maintaining a field laboratory where artifacts will be processed and conserved
  • Create a field museum where artifacts and interpretive displays will be exhibited for the public
