Stevie D Thru the Years

Decatur has a statue honoring war hero and namesake, Stephen Decatur.

And, like one of Decatur's other historic icons -- the Transfer House -- the Stephen Decatur statue has been relocated in the past as well.

Right now, it sits at the corner of William and Franklin -- in the grassy area south of the Decatur Civic Center.

Years ago, it sat on the grounds of the Millikin Homestead out on West Main.

Here's a look at the "Stephen Statue" thru the years:









And there's a beautiful Stephen Decatur mural in downtown Decatur too:
