Mike Creasy Decatur County Mayor
As County Mayor, I would like to welcome you to Decatur County and to our website. We have recently refreshed the site and encourage you to browse. Here you will access a wide range of information, beginning with facts about Decatur County government, its various departments, and the services they provide.
Decatur County is a picturesque community providing the friendliness of a small town and an entrepreneurial atmosphere for industry and business. Agriculture is still a major industry and as you drive through the back roads of the county, you will see pastures with dairy cattle, beef cattle and horses grazing in the fields. Lumber still thrives as a major industry and our local manufacturing industry ranges from walk-in coolers and freezers for the restaurant and convenience store industry, customer car haulers, high pressure commercial cleaning equipment, fabricating and tool and die shops.
Tourism is a significant part of Decatur County. With over 50 miles of shoreline along the beautiful Tennessee River, we offer abundant opportunities for all types of outdoor activities ranging from golf, camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, skiing, boating and all types of water sports. Shoppers come from surrounding areas to shop in our small, locally owned boutique shops for those unusual and unique items not found in the larger chain stores.
So whether you are searching for a place to do business, relocate or simply visit, we encourage you to consider Decatur County, Tennessee. I am confident you will receive a warm welcome and will want to visit us again. Come see us soon!
Decatur County Mayor,
