Why Live in Tucker?
Tucker first got its start back in 1820 and more established around the 1890s as a railroad stop along the Seaboard Air Line Railroad. It slowly grew until about the 1940s when General Motors and Kraft Foods in neighboring towns brought new residents to Tucker from across the nation. In the 1960s, newspapers identified Tucker as one of the areas of golden opportunity and the baby boom drove the growth of the county schools higher and with the affordability of the car and expansion of the highway system, Tucker became an ideal location outside of Atlanta.
It has several transportation outlets including the Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority or MARTA, as well as multiple interstates, US routes and state routes going to and from the center of town. Because of this, Tucker makes an excellent commuter town for those that work and play in downtown Atlanta and surrounding areas. [Pictured Gazebo at Henderson Park]

At first, I dreaded coming to Tucker. Leaving everything behind and uprooting my entire life to come to a foreign place was a very difficult proposition for my ten year old self. I was very closed minded, and I had no desire to be a part of this neighborhood. Fortunately, This did not last for long, and Tucker became part of my home and my identity. The amazing people that live here make me feel like part of a community. Our town is also very developed with a variety of small and big shops. Moreover, these shops, such as Walmart and Kroger are no more than ten minutes away. I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the Tucker community, and now this has become a place that I do not want to leave. - Niche.com
