Small Mountain Towns
Tucker County’s rich history is visible and pervasive in our culture. Exploring the county will make this evident. Mill buildings and coke ovens survive as unique landmarks from Tucker’s booming years of the coal and timber industries. Isolated chimneys stand as testament to the area’s settlers, and some of the buildings in downtown Davis and Thomas are more than a century old.
The National Register of Historic Places has officially recognized nine locations in Tucker County, including Cottrill’s Opera House in Thomas, the Tucker County Courthouse, and the Thomas Commercial Historic District.
