It’s a landmark of downtown Decatur, but have you ever wondered what’s inside it?
This summer, the DeKalb History Center is offering walking tours of the Historic DeKalb Courthouse, detailing the architectural styling of the building as well as its complete history in relation to Decatur Square.
Visitors will be able to go “behind the scenes” and climb up to the attic to see courthouse’s clock face from the inside, the history center said.
Tours will be offered at noon on every other Tuesday starting June 4 and continuing through August. They cost $5 for history center members and $10 for non-members.
