  LUXOMNI, GEORGIA
Est. 1891
Old Store

The Luxomni community began in 1891 as a railroad flag station, about one mile east of Lilburn.    The name came from two Latin words.  "Lux" is the Latin word for light, and "omni" in Latin means all.  The name Luxomni means "Light for all".

In the early days  Luxomni had a post office, a church, a Masonic lodge and several residents.

The Luxomni Baptist Church was organized July 20, 1895,  with Mannie Todd, Katy Garner, Joseph Garner, Mamy Collins, Ange Holt, R.N.Holt, Martha McNeal, J.M. McNeal, M.B. Haney, Leety Garner and R.P. Garner as charter members.  The church council included E.C. McDaniel, F.M. Cain, Rev. John E. Kennerly, Rev. J.P. McConnell and Rev. W.T. Aikin, the last named acting as moderator and E.C. McDaniel Clerk.

Not much is left of what was once Luxomni.  There were a few small, older homes on Arcado Road  and Luxomni Road (which runs from Arcado to Highway 29-Lawrenceville Highway).  Most have been demolished in recent years. There are a lot of body shops and small industrial companies along this stretch of Arcado.  The Luxomni Baptist Church is an active congregation.  The original building has been replaced by a modern brick building, and the cemetery is nicely maintained.  This area has a Lilburn address.
