City of Decatur....Working Together We Can Do Awesome Things!

Decatur is a small city nestled in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. Its heart lies at the intersection of Arkansas Highways 59 and 102. At first glance, with a population of 1,699 residents, Decatur may look like a sleepy little town. A closer look will reveal city parks, locally owned businesses, churches, and schools buzzing with activity.

Our town provides most needs of life; however, we are always glad to welcome new businesses  to our community. There is a convenience store, truck stop, a bank, a medical clinic, the public library, restaurants, and numerous churches. Familes can enjoy outings to one of our parks where one can picnic, fish, walk, swim, play disc golf, tennis, basketball, softball, or soccer, or just let the kiddos play on the playground equipment.

Other points of interest include on the first Saturday of every August is the Annual Decatur Barbeque. This is a 60 plus years of tradition that includes a parade, entertainment, chicken dinners, car show, crafts, and much more. Decatur is also home to one of the last standing Kansas City Southern train depots that has been converted to a museum. Close by is a mid-1800s log cabin that preserves some of the history of the area during the Civil War Days.

Whether you are passing through, visiting, or making Decatur your home, with an area of approximately 5 square miles, everyone is a neighbor.
