Our county had been a village with the name of “Haçka” before it became a county in 1944 and its name has been changed as “Düzköy” when it became a municipality in 1961.

County of Düzköy is consisted of 6 different neighbourhoods as Düzalan, Orta Mahalle, Büyük Mahalle, Cevizlik Mahallesi, Yenimahalle, Tepecik.
Maçka is a town which is connected to Trabzon Province. It is on the Gümüşhane highway and 29 kilometers in distance to Trabzon.
There is almost no scientific litterateur about the history of Koprubasi and the first habitation process. According to the information we got; some of the Turkish tribes which migrated from Central Asia came to Trabzon after the conquest and were placed in some available areas. Before the settling, Koprubasi was full of rich forests and the sun could not heat the soil due to the density of trees.
It is known that settlement dates back to ancient times in Şalpazarı. The Çepnis who live in this region are the people who came from Ucoklar tribe of Oghuzs.
There is no certain knowledge about the first establishment of Tonya but it is understood that it was between the end of 13th century and the beginning of 14th century. With the conquest of Trabzon by the Turks in 1461, Rum Pontus Empire's sovereignty came to an end. Ottoman Period went by with the transculturation of native Rums and Turkish people, who came as immigrants. In this period, both Rum and Turkish cultures interacted with each other. This interaction shows itself even today.
Hence the very old ages, the history of Dernekpazari is parallel with the Eastern Black Sea Region which contains this county within its borders.
The history of town is related to that of Trabzons in general. According to historical reports, the town has been settled down by so many tribes since Hittites. It fell under the hegemony of Pechenegs and Byzantines. Ultimately, in 1461, Mehmed II took Trabzon from Pontus Empire and it came under the rule of Ottoman Empire. In 1915, during the World War I, the town was invaded by Russian Army.
