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.
