The town got its name from naval war hero Stephen Decatur. During the Civil War, General Sherman used Decatur’s strategic location to choke off supplies to the Confederate Army. Decatur's rejection of a railroad terminus resulted in the creation of "Terminus", later renamed "Atlanta." and today Decatur is considered an in town suburb, part of the Atlanta Metropolitan Area.
