Founded in 1829 on the banks of the Sangamon River and Lake Decatur in central Illinois, Decatur is the seventeenth largest city in the state and an important agricultural hub for the region. Decatur is home to the Edward P. Irving House, designed by iconic American Architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Decatur was also the first home of legendary American President Abraham Lincoln, who would go on to become one of the most celebrated Presidents and known for ending slavery in the United States and leading the Union Army during the American Civil War. Decatur has an economy based primarily on industrial manufacturing and agriculture.
Produced by noted Prussian-born Albert Ruger, cartographer and lithographer, this bird's eye perspective captures Decatur in a period of significant growth and transformation following the conclusion of the civil war. The region experienced tremendous growth as Southern Americans flocked to the region, eager for economic opportunities in the farms, mills, and manufacturing facilities found in the region. Decatur features a historic downtown and was awarded the All-America City Award in 1960 for its classic American small-town culture. Decatur features seventy-one distinct neighborhoods, many of which date back to this period of expansion during reconstruction.
Ruger's bird's eye perspectives bear a distinctive style and unique aesthetic that immediately transport the viewer back in time, creating a link between the present and the past while providing insight into how towns and communities have grown and evolved throughout their history and the influence they have on the region.
