Summary

Longtime Norcross resident Sally Toole invites you on a nostalgic journey through the city's past. Named not for the founder but for his best friend, Norcross has maintained a welcoming spirit since its incorporation over one hundred years ago. Discover the days when the railroad was first placed atop old Indian trails and Atlanta residents escaped by train to their favorite summer resort. Find out why Norcross boasted more professional baseball players per capita than any other town in the United States. Colorful characters and heartwarming stories will remind residents and visitors alike why Norcross is a town that you never want to leave.
