DeKalb's Area of Golden Opportunity

Settlers first arrived in Tucker in the 1820s, and graves of some of them remain in the cemeteries around the city center. The construction of the railroad brought Tucker to the forefront, and the depot is still used today as a field office for track repair and signal maintenance.

After World War II, Tucker began to transition from an agricultural community into a more residential area with industrial, business, and retail spaces. Families began to flock to the area, and Tucker quickly became "DeKalb's Area of Golden Opportunity."

Because of a lack of city government, Tucker's residents took it upon themselves to form groups and associations, including the Tucker Business Association, Tucker Community Improvement District, Tucker Civic Association, the Tucker Historical Society, and the Tucker Parent Council.

Numerous festivals and events are held each year, including Tucker Day, the Taste of Tucker, the Tucker Chili Cook-Off, and the Tucker Cruise-In. Additionally, there are more than 230 acres of parks and recreation areas within Tucker's city limits.

Tucker Fun Fact: The first business built in Tucker was a saloon and horse race track!
