Decatur's Storied History
Decatur, IL, in central Illinois, is just east of Springfield off Interstate 72 and is the county seat of Macon County. The city sits on the edge of Lake Decatur and is the largest municipality in Macon County at just over 75,000 people. This quiet community has graced Illinois for over 180 years. It was founded in 1829 and still thrives today.
City Motto "Decatur, We Like It Here"
Decatur has changed its theme over the years. The area was once unofficially known as the "Soybean Capital of the World." However, even though this old motto still sticks, city officials now want the area to be known as likable, claiming "Decatur, We Like It Here" as their official motto.
The motto is appropriate. According to AreaVibes.com, the area is likable and livable. In their scoring, the website gave the city an A+ for affordability and a B+ in amenities.
Notable Part of Illinois' History
Honest Abe and the famous Chicago Bears have all spent some time in the city. The former president moved to the area just west of Decatur in 1830, later moving to Springfield. However, even though he had moved west, his nomination for president by the Republican Party was announced at the convention held in Decatur in 1860.
The city was mentioned in the recently released film Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter as the president's home and place of "vampire hunting." Sixty years after Lincoln's nomination, a football team called the Decatur Staleys played at the local Staley Field. It would go on to become the renowned Chicago Bears, Monsters of the Midway.
