About the neighborhood

Conveniently located between Springfield (State Capitol and Lincoln’s home before his presidency) and Champaign (home to University of Illinois), less than 1/2 mile from Millikin University, and near the world-renowned Archer Daniels Midland (ADM); one of the largest agribusiness companies in the world. The West End National Historic District is a residential historic district located in western Decatur, Illinois. The district, which was primarily built in the first half of the 20th century, includes over 1,700 contributing buildings. The West End was a popular neighborhood for Decatur’s business owners and managers at its large industries, and the majority of its residents came from upper-middle class occupations; however, the district also had many working-class residents. A diverse array of architecture is featured in the district; twenty-three different architectural styles and twelve vernacular types are represented in its homes. The Dutch Colonial Revival and American Craftsman styles are the most prevalent, along with the latter’s related vernacular type, the bungalow; the English Revival, Colonial Revival, Prairie School, and Georgian Revival styles also had a significant influence on the district’s character. The Decatur area offers an abundance of indoor and outdoor activities for all ages. Go boating, fishing, sailing, or jet skiing on beautiful Lake Decatur. Visit the alluring coffee shops, bars, breweries, and restaurants. For the whole family, there are everyday options such as Overlook Adventure Park, Scovill Zoo, Children’s Museum of Illinois, Chevrolet Hall of Fame Museum, 4 Golf Courses, 2 Disc Golf Courses, swimming, bowling, and movie theaters. Furthermore, Decatur Indoor Sports Complex and the various athletic clubs make it possible to take outdoor activities—such as soccer and tennis—indoors. Beyond everyday options, there are possibilities such as live music and comedy at Devon Lakeshore Amphitheater as well as theater and art exhibits.
