Fodor's Review

Known as the Old Courthouse on the Square, this charming building was constructed in 1898 and now houses the DeKalb History Center. It's in the middle of the shops, pubs, and coffeehouses of Decatur's quaint main square. Free concerts are sometimes held in the gazebo behind the Old Courthouse. Getting here is easy, as downtown Decatur has its own stop on MARTA's east–west rail line.
