Decatur

The city of Decatur lies six MARTA train stops east of downtown Atlanta. The city is actually a little bit older than Atlanta and was named for noted war hero Captain Stephen Decatur, who died in 1820 in a duel that ended a decade-long argument. A number of MailChimp employees call Decatur home, and for good reason—it’s exceedingly livable. Recent apartment construction has even made the small city a little bit more affordable. Oakhurst is a neighborhood in the southern half of Decatur, and it has many nice bungalows and a quaint downtown itself.
