Decatur proudly proclaims itself a city of “homes, schools, and places of worship.” While that motto might seem to describe any number of small towns, the words accurately capture the essence of Decatur, a place of fine and humble homes, well-regarded schools, and large, active churches. Founded by the Georgia legislature in 1823 to be the county seat of DeKalb County, Decatur took its name from Commodore Stephen Decatur, a U.S. naval hero of the early 1800s. In the years since, Decatur has grown into a busy suburb of neighboring Atlanta, produced Agnes Scott College, and attracted both the Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital and Columbia Theological Seminary. Decatur has been home to fascinating Georgians, including Civil War memoirist Mary Gay and writer Rebecca Latimer Felton, the first woman to be seated as a U.S. senator (if only for a day).

About the Author:

Veteran newspaper reporter and editor Joe Earle, a longtime Decatur resident, has assembled images from the DeKalb History Center, the archives of churches, and other Decatur institutions to show how the city has changed through the years. These images record Decatur’s growth from a quiet country village to a busy community at the center of a populous, suburban county.
