Dacula, GA

Dacula is a growing community located in Gwinnett County.  Dacula is located on the Seaboard Railroad , approximately six miles east of Lawrenceville. It dates back to 1891 when the railroad was being constructed, and the contractors selected it as their temporary camp.  In it's earliest days it was known as Hoke, and a post office was established in this name to honor a railroad official, but the railroad refused to have the town continue under that name. John W. Freeman, the first postmaster, suggested the name "Dacula" as a combination of "Decatur" and "Atlanta" and that name stuck.

In 1905 Dacula was incorporated, with Dr. S.L. Hinton as its first mayor. The highway from Athens was graded in 1928 and paved in 1931. A modern brick city hall was erected in 1935 at a cost of $2,500.

The Hebron Baptist Church was organized July 2, 1842, and a house erected on the Davenport place, known later as the Loveless estate. Two years later, John Wood gave the church three acres of land where the second building was built. The building still in use in 1959 was erected in 1881, with additions following. (Update - the Hebron Church is now an enormous complex, spanning about a block at the corner of Dacula Road and Fence Road).

Dacula population was 4,442 at the 2010 census, and the town is 2.9 square miles.
