Before Fulton County, there was DeKalb County; before Atlanta, there was Decatur. It is a community rich in history and the "mother county" of the city of Atlanta. A tiny town called Terminus was established in 1846 and from this early settlement in DeKalb County, the South's most thriving city, its cosmopolitan center, was born. DeKalb County in Vintage Postcards depicts the tranquil days before the boom of Atlanta, revealing a landscape unfamiliar to present-day residents of the area. Postcard scenes of the famed Stone Mountain, Camp Gordon, and the historic neighborhood of Druid Hills are featured within these pages, along with a variety of churches and educational institutions.
