ABOUT DECATUR

Decatur and nearby were initially developed due to the construction of major railroad lines through the area allowing access to cotton, cattle and later oil in DECATUR. The construction of the Interstate Highway System reinforced DECATUR`s prominence as a transportation hub, with four major interstate highways converging in the city and a fifth interstate loop around it. DECATUR then developed as a strong industrial and financial center and a major inland port, due to the convergence of major railroad lines, interstate highways and the construction of DECATUR International Airport, one of the largest and busiest airports in the world.
