150th Anniversary of the Civil War Actions in the Tucker Northlake Area

Tucker Historical Society will celebrate Tucker’s 122nd anniversary with a special Browning Courthouse Open House on Saturday, July 19th from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm in observance of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War actions in the Tucker Northlake area. The DeKalb Convention and Visitors Bureau (DCVB) printed a nice brochure of historic sites and civil war points of interest in DeKalb County. Tucker’s Browning Courthouse is first on the list. The DCVB brochures will be available at the event.

In addition to viewing archives and collections inside and outside the building, scheduled guest speakers will also be on hand to share their stories.
Tucker Historical Society members, Mary Bolton and her brother Paul Thomas, descendants of the early Browning family; Fran Franz portraying Miss Mary Gay of Decatur as she shares her stories of helping the Confederate soldiers and saving her Decatur home during Union occupation; and Gregory Bailey, Deacon and Community Service Director of Salem Missionary Baptist Church will share his story of discovering his family’s slave roots in Lilburn.

On the front lawn, Tucker Civic Association plans to have related historical activities for kids of all ages, information tables for Tucker community groups and refreshments.

Come learn about Tucker history and enjoy the day!
