Decatur contains three historic districts, the MAK Historic District, the Clairemont Historic District, and the most recently established historic district, the Ponce de Leon Court Historic District. The MAK Historic District is named for the three main streets it encompasses (McDonough, Adams and Kings Highway). The Clairemont Historic District runs the length of Clairemont Avenue from Commerce Drive and Hunter Street in the south to Maediris Drive in the north. The Ponce de Leon Court Historic District is a single street off of East Ponce de Leon Avenue near downtown Decatur with 26 parcels developed in the 1920’s Downtown Decatur is surrounded by beautiful, historic neighborhoods reflecting a variety of architectural styles. The tree-lined streets, strong sense of community and nationally recognized public school system continue to draw young families to the City.
