Buried in our backyard

Buried in the old section of Decatur Cemetery are many of Decatur’s most influential citizens from years past. Some are prominent, others more obscure. Here are a few of their stories.

Many Decatur citizens don’t know about the treasure trove of history that lies in the very heart of the city. The FODC (Friends of Decatur Cemetery) are helping to raise awareness of the cemetery’s historic value to the Decatur community.
