The Tucker Farm Center is a complete facility for the arts, celebratory gatherings and a community meeting place. The Center is used for dances, birthday parties, children’s and adult theater and theater workshops, weddings, anniversary parties, meetings and other special events.
The Tucker Farm Center is named for Reason P. Tucker who made his way to the Napa Valley in 1846 having traveled via a circuitous route across the United States from the east coast.
He is perhaps best known for his role in organizing and leading the first (as well as several subsequent expeditions) to rescue stranded members of the Donner Party soon after arriving in California. His widely respected leadership abilities along with his heroics helped to earn him the honorary title of “Captain”.
Mr. Tucker helped settle the Napa Valley by planting wheat fields in the area, he invested in the first quicksilver mine in Napa County, and he was part owner of the first resort, Sam Brannan’s, in Calistoga.
