History Of  Decatur County
This county bears the name of the gallant Commodore Stephen Decatur. The surface is level and slightly rolling. There are no prairie lands. The bottoms are not extensive, but very fertile. On some of the streams the land is hilly. The soil of the upland is a rich, black loam, and the timber consists mostly of ash, poplar, walnut, sugar tree, oak and beech. Along the east and south borders of the county there are some wet lands, well adapted to grass, but not good for growing grain. The stone quarries of Decatur county afford substantial profit. The building stone of the county is inexhaustible, and is being raised with good commercial results. The citizens of the county are a thrifty, intelligent set of men, awake to their own interests, and constantly developing the great resources of their county.
Greensburgh is the county seat.    It is located on the Indianapolis, Cincinnati & La Fayette railroad, and, enjoying the productions of a rich agricultural region, blessed with energetic citizens, it is growing rapidly. Already it is a flourishing place, having excellent schools and good public improvements.
