Decatur, Georgia

Decatur, Georgia is the county seat of DeKalb County. This historic city was founded in 1823 - before neighboring Atlanta, Georgia. It is known not only for its beautiful homes and historic places of worship but also for its several institutions of higher learning. Decatur's official motto is "A city of homes, schools and places of worship."

Centered on the historic Decatur Courthouse, Decatur, Georgia has become a hot destination for college students and young professionals who want hip bars, great restaurants, and walkable neighborhoods, as well as for families who are drawn to the excellent independent school district. In addition to the single-family homes in old neighborhoods surrounding downtown Decatur, in recent years there has been a breath of new life into the downtown community by several mid-rise condominium developments. With a population of 19,335 in the 2010 census, Decatur, Georgia is sometimes assumed to be larger since multiple zip codes in unincorporated DeKalb County also bear the Decatur name.

While it may appear to be a typical southern city, Decatur, Georgia marches to the beat of a different drummer. Decatur declined to become a railroad transportation hub for the southeast in the 19th Century, resulting in the founding of Atlanta, Georgia to its west. Both delegates from DeKalb County also voted against the secession in 1861. Decatur, Georgia is one of the few parts of the sprawling Atlanta, Georgia area that blends a small-town feel with an open-minded, freewheeling, artsy sensibility.
