While in Decatur, you can take a walk through the historic square. You can take a look at the newest of our 4 courthouses built in 1896. The last 3 had burnt to the ground; legend says that it is the witch of Decatur that keeps burning them down. Legend also has it that as long as there is a courthouse in Decatur, she will come back to burn it to the ground.

If you take your kids along, then you can write down some facts you find out throughout the day and create a quiz about history.
