Founded in 1905, Dacula’s name is one of the first and most striking aspects of the city. While at first glance it seems like someone was a fan of Bram Stoker, the reality is that it is the result of a creative postmaster. Wanting to be unique and detesting the original name suggestion of Hoke, he took other city names, such as Atlanta and Decatur and blended them together to create Dacula (pronounced as “duh-Que-lah). The unique name though is only one aspect that sets this little town apart that sits in Gwinnett county..
“A treasure in time.. on track for tomorrow.”
That is the motto for this seemingly sleepy little suburban town that falls within the Atlanta metropolitan area. The iconic Elisha Winn House in Dacula once served as the courthouse and county office for this past railroad hub, which was bustling into the 1950s. Even after the railroad closed down the little town continued to grow over the years and now boasts itself as home of the largest Southern Baptists Chuech in the Southeast of the US.
