“Housed in a GREAT building”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Nice, not too large, great building. Decent displays, Decatur, you know, turned down having the railroad intersect there, they wanted a more bucolic life.

“a bit of Dekalb and Decatur history”

Last time I was in the old court house was for a wedding reception. Seemed appropriate. It is majestic as you drive up Clairmont.

“Nice old county courthouse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

surrounded by office buildings, this is a quite niche in old Decatur. Has some charming sculptures out front. Worth a look.
