Tuckertown

Tuckertown, a farming community six miles southeast of Corsicana in the Powell oilfield in eastern Navarro County, was established in early July 1923. It flourished briefly during the peak years of the oil boom. In the mid-1930s Tuckertown had two stores and a number of scattered houses; its estimated population in 1940 was twenty. After World War II most of the residents moved away, and by the mid-1960s Tuckertown was no longer shown on highway maps.
