Decatur provides the small town atmosphere you’ve always wanted, with all the amenities of a nearby city.

The town has the unofficial motto of “It’s greater in Decatur.”
Founded in 1823, Decatur is only six miles northeast of Downtown Atlanta, but this dynamic city of 22,000 enjoys a unique history and eclectic style all its own. Decatur is a city of smaller neighborhoods, each with their own distinct look and feel. Home styles range from 100-year-old Victorian mansions and Craftsman style bungalows to mid-century modern ranches, historic townhomes and new mid-rise condominium buildings.

Decatur is known as much for its happening restaurant scene as it is for its history and charm. In 2016, The New York Times anointed Decatur as “Atlanta’s gastronomic equivalent of Berkeley or Brooklyn,” which explains why residents and visitors alike flock to the area’s numerous award-winning restaurants.
Decatur celebrates the arts on a daily basis with its extensive collection of public artwork on display throughout the city.
