There’s an old saying: “Life in a small town is as fun as you want to make it.” And when you meet a man like M. L. Johns, you know it’s true. Mr. Johns has lived, worked and played in and around Tucker his whole life. He’s a descendant of the Johns family, pioneer farmers and merchants of the Pea Ridge community, more commonly known as Rehobeth.
Let’s step into the Tucker Time Machine, and visualize our town. It may require a stretch of the imagination, but there was a time not so long ago when Tucker was just a collection of farms on dirt roads and a handful of streets lined with small sturdy homes all leading to the churches, schools and Main Street.
