Decatur had an awesome year in 2022!

Here are some of our proudest moments reflected in the media.

Decatur is GROWING and our housing market is booming!

From being recognized nationally as an Emerging Housing Market and one of the most cost-effective places to live in the country, to population growth and a high number of new neighborhoods and downtown living options, more and more people are choosing to call Decatur home.

Businesses are finding success in Decatur!

We build rockets here – but we also have small businesses being recognized for their excellence. Decatur routinely is top 10 in the state for new and expanding industries and is #1 in the state for the number of our entrepreneurial incubator tenants AND graduates.

History buffs are finding more and more reasons to come to Decatur!

Rail history, civil war history, civil rights history – there are so many great and interesting stories to explore in exhibits at the Old State Bank and Morgan County Archives.

Our schools are being recognized for their excellence and the experiences they provide to our children!

Three schools in Decatur City Schools this year were recognized nationally for excellence. Students routinely participate in community-wide events such as this year’s Dia de los Muertos.
