Cemetery notes and/or description:
Decatur Post Office was opened Oct 1, 1900 by Cyrenious "Cy" Wade. On Feb 3, 1903 Hugh F Wade became the postmaster and four months later Sherman B Wade suceeded H E.
Sometime in the early teens, Mr Sam Tarter built the Decatur building where the customers could buy anthing from Black Draught to Road Wagons to Stamps. Its unique facade has been torn away but the 82-year old building is still standing. The bars over the windows are still there. It is located south of the Goose Creek Swimming hole, opposite the location of the Boss Richardson house, and 50 years ago could be reached by walking the extra long swinging bridge across the creek and the bottom toward the store. Well-kept Decatur Cemetery is located on the hill west of the store. One room Decatur School was once located on a hill north west of the store and a free-running spring used by the school was located about half way between.
