Decatur Real Estate’s History

In the 1830s, the Western and Atlantic Railroad wanted to make Decatur real estate the southernmost stop on its railroad. The owners of Decatur real estate did not want the noise, pollution and growth that would come with such a major terminal, so they rejected the proposal. In response, the railroad founded a new city to the west-southwest of Decatur real estate for the terminal. This town would later become known as Atlanta, Georgia. In the Civil War, Decatur real estate was an important strategic site during General W.T. Sherman's campaign against Atlanta. General John McPherson occupied Decatur to cut Confederate supply lines with Augusta, Georgia.
